This Bill seeks to establish the post of Community Prosecution Lawyer in each parliamentary constituency in England and Wales for the purpose of bringing to account those responsible for committing offences relating to anti-social behaviour. It aims to bring the law closer to the people by making such posts elected, ensuring that local policing of anti-social behaviour mirrors the needs and demands of local people.
The Bill was scheduled to receive its second reading on 20th June 2003, however, it was not debated.
