Weightmans selected to advise on Anti-Social Behaviour
A lawyer at national law firm Weightmans LLP has been invited by
the government to scrutinise and advise on provisions in the draft
Anti-Social Behaviour Bill, published last week.
Jane Plant, Associate at Weightmans, will attend the
consultation on behalf of the Property Litigation and Social
Housing teams at Weightmans in January 2013, where she will
participate in a small meeting of experts to work through the
possession provisions in detail and give her views on how they may
need to be revised or refined in preparation for the introduction
of a Bill in Parliament.
The Home Affairs Select Committee has announced that it will be
conducting the pre-legislative scrutiny of the proposals in the New
Year and will be also accepting written contributions from the
firm, including input from Property Litigation Partner Sian
