§ Miss McIntosh
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent representations he has received on anti-social behaviour in the Vale of York. 
§ Ms Blears
Neither myself, nor officials in the Anti-Social Behaviour Unit, have received any recent representations about anti-social behaviour in the Vale of York.
Following the launch of "together. Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour" the Government's Action Plan on the 14 October, the together Academy and together ActionLine will both be available in early 2004, to offer advice and information on all anti-social behaviour related matters. In addition, every CDRP will receive additional funding to tackle anti-social behaviour in 2004–05 and 2005–06. Taken together, existing powers and new powers introduced in the Anti-Social Behaviour Act and the Action Plan aim to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of people who are victims of anti-social behaviour.
