Press Release   •   Jan 07, 2010 10:52 GMT

“The Government has clearly failed to tackle anti-social behaviour and their flagship ASBOs have proven to be just an ineffective gimmick," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary.

Commenting on today’s Government survey on public perception of anti-social behaviour, Chris Huhne said:

“Despite the spin and a hundred million pounds, more people think anti-social behaviour has got worse in their area than think it has got better.

“The Government has clearly failed to tackle anti-social behaviour and their flagship ASBOs have proven to be just an ineffective gimmick.

“The best way to reassure people in these difficult times is to put more police on the beat to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour. The Liberal Democrats are the only party promising to do so.”
