Mr. Evennett: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many breaches of anti-social behaviour orders have resulted in a criminal conviction in the London borough of Bexley since the inception of the orders. 
Mr. Alan Campbell: Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) became available from April 1999. The latest ASBO breach data is only available for the period 1 June 2000 to 31 December 2006 and are not collected below criminal justice system (CJS) area.
Information collected centrally on the number of ASBO breaches only counts those instances where the breach of ASBO was proven in court. Between 1 June 2000 and 31 December 2006, ASBOs were proven in court to have been breached on 2,077 occasions in the Greater London CJS area.

Mr. Jenkins: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much funding her Department allocated to tackle anti-social behaviour in (a) Tamworth constituency, (b) Staffordshire and (c) the West Midlands in each year since the inception of such programmes. 
Mr. Alan Campbell: As with all other Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs), Tamworth was allocated £25,000 a year from 2003-04 as a contribution towards funding an ASB Co-ordinator Post. In 2005-06, in England the antisocial co-ordinators grant was pooled within the safer and stronger communities fund. This pooled budget supports the delivery of outcomes and indicators relating to anti-social behaviour in local area agreements (LAAs).
Respect Programmes in Staffordshire and West Midlands also have an impact on anti-social behaviour. These programmes were designed to kick start a change in the way the area worked to tackle antisocial behaviour. Other Home Office led activities also act to tackle antisocial behaviour, for example the introduction of community support officers, but a monetary value cannot be assigned to that contribution.
