Antisocial Behaviour Orders

Mr. Gray: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many post-conviction antisocial behaviour orders were issued in each constabulary area in the last period for which figures are available; what assessment she has made of the variation in bureaucratic procedures
30 Jan 2008 : Column 377W
used by constabularies for post-conviction antisocial behaviour orders; how many pages each constabulary’s application form runs to; and if she will make a statement. [182583]

Mr. Coaker: Data on antisocial behaviour orders on conviction broken down by constabulary area are not yet available but are due to be published in the spring. Police forces devise their own application forms for antisocial behaviour orders and no assessment has been made of the variation in their procedures. It is therefore not possible to say how long the forms are.

Bail

Nick Herbert: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many arrests for breach of bail conditions were made in each police area in the last year for which data is available. [182301]

Mr. McNulty [holding answer 25 January 2008]: The data collected by the Ministry of Justice on arrests are broken down by offence group and therefore do not specifically identify arrests for breach of bail conditions.

Cocaine

Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many crack houses have been closed down in each of the last 12 months; and under what powers they were closed down. [182776]

Mr. Coaker: The official published figures are released on an annual basis as follows:

The Antisocial Behaviour Act 2003 introduced the power for courts to issue orders for the closure of
30 Jan 2008 : Column 378W
premises where Class A drugs and serious nuisance and disorder are a problem. The provision commenced on 20 January 2004.

The data for 2006-07 will be published spring 2008.

Crime

Tim Farron: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences of (a) violence against the person, (b) sexual offences, (c) robbery, (d) burglary, (e) theft and handling of stolen goods, (f) theft from the person, (g) theft from shops, (h) theft of vehicles, (i) theft from vehicles , (j) fraud and forgery, (k) criminal damage and (l) drug offences were recorded in each (i) UK police force area and (ii) settlement type as defined by the Rural and Urban Area Classification in each of the last 10 years. [181993]

Mr. McNulty [holding answer 25 January 2008]: Information at police force area level is published annually for the following offence groups: violence against the person, sexual offences, robbery, burglary, theft and handling stolen goods, fraud and forgery, criminal damage and drug offences.

Figures for 1997 to 2006-07 are provided in the individual volumes of the annual publication “Crime Statistics, England and Wales”.

Statistics for theft from the person, thefts from shops and thefts of and from vehicles are published annually for individual police force areas from 1997 to 2000-01 in table 3.1 of “Criminal Statistics, England and Wales, Supplementary Volume 3”.

Statistics for these four offences from 2001-02 onwards are given in the following tables.

Copies of all the publications referred to above should be available in the Library.

The Home Office does not receive recorded crime data at the detailed geographic level as defined by the Rural and Urban Area Classification.
