HC Deb 19 April 2004 vol 420 c344W
Mrs. Curtis-Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what response his Department received from Merseyside's local authorities regarding demotion orders. [165918]

Mr. Raynsford

Neither the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, which leads on demotion policy nor the Home Office, which leads on anti-social behaviour policy more generally, are aware of any correspondence with Merseyside's local authorities relating to the subject of demotions orders. Should the hon. Member wish to bring any issue relating to demotion to my attention, I should be happy to bring it to the attention of the appropriate Minister.
