§ 6. Mr. Miller
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what new strategies he intends to provide to tackle drug problems in England and Wales.
§ Mr. Jack
In addition to developing the drugs prevention initiatives, whose lives were recently extended until 1995, we are implementing the EC directive on precursor chemical control, and putting through the House the Criminal Justice Act. Finally, at a national level, we are committed to bringing forward proposals to ensure that the control of drug misuse is co-ordinated more effectively.
§ 26. Mr. Ronnie Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what new strategies he intends to promote to tackle drug problems in Blyth Valley.
§ Mr. Jack
I wrote to the hon. Member on 30 November 1992 about some of the projects in the north-east in which the drugs prevention team based in Newcastle has been involved and offered my assistance on any related matters he wished to raise including how these ideas might apply to Blyth. That offer still stands.
