Number of orders lower than forecast

Just six antisocial behaviour orders were issued in Greater London
in the year to September 2002.

Home Office minister Bob Ainsworth said the figure was based on the
number issued within the Greater London Magistrates’ Courts
Association area.

Only 785 Asbos were issued in England and Wales between April 1999
and September 2002, far lower than the 5,000 figure used in the
Crime and Disorder Bill’s financial costings.
