Police Reform Bill [Lords]

[back to previous text]

Mr. Hawkins: In the light of the Minister's sympathy for the stance of my local authority and my police force, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Clause 57 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Column Number: 380

Clause 58

Orders on conviction in criminal proceedings

Mrs. Brooke: I beg to move amendment No. 279, in page 54, line 33, leave out 'two years' and insert 'six months'.

Briefly, if there were the opportunity to have an ASBO rescinded after six months, that might focus the offender's mind on changing his or her behaviour in a shorter period, rather than waiting a full two years.

Mr. Denham: We are reluctant to make the change, but the hon. Lady has highlighted an anomaly in the drafting of the legislation, so we shall table an amendment on Report, when we shall discuss the matter again.

Mrs. Brooke: I thank the Minister. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Clause 58 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 59

Interim orders

Amendment made: No. 267, in page 55, line 24, leave out from 'appeals),' to end of line 25 and insert

    'after ''an anti-social behaviour order'' there shall be inserted '', an order under section 1D above,''.'.—[Mr. Denham.]

Clause 59, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 60

Consultation requirements

Amendment made: No. 239, in page 55, line 30, leave out from beginning to end of line 38 and insert—

    '(1) This section applies to—

    (a) applications for an anti-social behaviour order; and

    (b) applications for an order under section 1B.

    (2) Before making an application to which this section applies, the council for a local government area shall consult the chief officer of police of the police force maintained for the police area within which that local government area lies.

    (3) Before making an application to which this section applies, a chief officer of police shall consult the council for the local government area in which the person in relation to whom the application is to be made resides or appears to reside.

    (4) Before making an application to which this section applies, a relevant authority other than a council for a local government area or a chief officer of police shall consult—

    (a) the council for the local government area in which the person in relation to whom the application is to be made resides or appears to reside; and

    (b) the chief officer of police of the police force maintained for the police area within which that local government area lies.'''.—[Mr. Denham.]
