North Herefordshire MP, Bill Wiggin, questioned the Government in the House of Commons on Monday 16 November about antisocial behaviour.

Bill Wiggin MP said: “It is very important to me that my constituents feel safe in their communities.

I welcome the news that crime has fallen by 8 per cent year-on-year, according to the independent Crime Survey for England and Wales, and by more than a quarter (30 per cent) since 2010.

In West Mercia crime recorded by the police has fallen by 7%. This is good news for families across West Mercia – meaning their communities are safer and more secure than ever before.

However I am still contacted by constituents about problems with antisocial behaviour, so I decided to use the opportunity to raise the matter with the Government.”

In the House of Commons Mr Wiggin had said: “One of the more irritating crimes is antisocial behaviour.

Will the Government send a very positive message to the police community support officers who do so much to deal with this problem?”

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Karen Bradley): “It is incredibly important that the police tackle antisocial behaviour. It makes a difference to so many of our constituents and is an issue that comes up in our postbags.”
