Pre-legislative scrutiny

14.On 13 December 2012, the draft Anti-social Behaviour Bill was published for pre-legislative scrutiny by the Home Affairs Select Committee. The Committee published its report on 15 February 2013 (Twelfth Report of Session 2012-13, HC836). The Government response to this was published on 16 April 2013 (Cm 8607). In its response to the Committee’s recommendations, the Government indicated that it would make three main changes to the policy as set out in the draft Bill, namely:


Provide for a limit on the maximum length of injunctions for under 18s of 12 months;


Introduce a requirement for pre-approval of the use of a dispersal order by an officer of at least the rank of inspector; and


Set a maximum threshold for the community trigger that local agencies could use when establishing their processes.
