Graffiti And Tagging

EDM number 134 in 2007-08, proposed by John Hemming on 07/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Anti-social behaviour, Crime and Alternatives to prison.

That this House notes the problems caused by graffiti and tagging; believes that this is a good example of a crime that warrants a community punishment; further believes that an appropriate community punishment would be to clear up the mess created; fails to comprehend why the Crown Prosecution Service refuses to prosecute cases where less than £5,000 of damage is done; and calls for those who create the mess of tagging to be required to clear it up.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs.
