Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill

Call for evidence on a Legislative Consent Memorandum on the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill

The Scottish Government lodged a supplementary Legislative Consent Memorandum (LCM) on 11 November 2013 for the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill.

The LCM explains why the Scottish Government would like the Scottish Parliament to give consent to the Westminster Parliament to legislate in certain areas which are devolved. The particular provisions of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill that this LCM wishes to be extended to Scotland cover:

  • the criminalisation of forced marriage;
  • the enforcement of civil protection orders relating to sexual offenders; and 
  • the functions of Scottish ministers in relation to firearms offences.
