§ Mr. Lepper
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how many people have been prosecuted in each year since 1988 under section 28 of the Local Government Act 1988. 
§ Mr. Meale
No local authority to date has been taken to court for breach of section 28 of the Local Government Act 1988. I should clarify that the restrictions in the section apply to the actions of local authorities, not individual people.
