Scottish Conservatives acknowledge 37% reduction in antisocial behaviour after 10 years of SNP Government

‘Relax, you can trust us.’ Scottish Conservatives pulling the wool over eyes for decades now

Alison Harris (SCAUP) asked the Scottish Government on Thursday what action it is taking to reduce the number of antisocial behaviour incidents.

Ash Denham (SNP) replied:

Evidence on antisocial behaviour points towards a long-term, sustained reduction in Scotland. For example, the nationally representative Scottish Crime and Justice Survey shows that the percentage of adults who think people behave in an antisocial manner in their local area has fallen from 46% in 2008/9 to 29% in 2017/18. National figures from the Scottish Household Survey highlighted that 95% of people in Scotland rate their neighbourhoods as ‘very’ or ‘fairly good’ which positively reflects the community policing approach being taken by Police Scotland across the country.

  1. Is this Alison Harris a troy MSP? – Genuine query – I don’t recall ever hearing her name before now – and I take an interest in things political. Remarkable how they slink around the political system for years barely breaking cover.
