Mr. Iain Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what flexibility local magistrates have in deciding whether to publish the names of youths (a) with antisocial behaviour orders and (b) convicted of other offences. 
Hazel Blears: Under the Children and Young Person's Act 1933, section 49, automatic reporting restrictions apply in all youth courts. It has been an established principle in British law since 1933 that juvenile defendants should not have their identity made public in criminal cases unless the court feels that the public interest requires it. The courts do not routinely grant such applications and each case is considered on its own merits.
There are no automatic reporting restrictions on antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) as they are civil orders. However, courts do have the power to impose reporting restrictions in ASBO cases and where they are imposed, they must be adhered to.
Breach of an ASBO is a criminal offence and until recently young people who breached their ASBOs were protected by the automatic reporting restrictions of the youth court. However, provisions in the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 removed these automatic restrictions which means ASBO breaches by young people can now be reported. Reporting restrictions have only been lifted on cases of Breach of ASBOs in the youth court, they remain in place for other youth court matters.
