§ 96. Mr. Parkin
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will set up an inquiry into the causes and extent of non-pharmacological progression from the amphetamine-barbiturate type of teenage drug addiction to that of classified dangerous drugs.
§ Sir F. Soskice
The Interdepartmental Committee on Drug Addiction is already considering certain aspects of the general problem and I propose to await its report before considering, in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health, whether further inquiry into the particular factors likely to cause drug dependence and addiction is needed.
