To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he is taking to improve international co-operation in combating the global drugs trade. 
§ Mr. Battle
The FCO coordinates the international elements of the UK's national drugs strategy, in close cooperation with Keith Hellawell, the UK Anti-Drugs Coordinator. Our efforts are targeted, with other Government Departments, on reducing the production and trafficking of class A drugs to the UK and Europe; and on improving the effectiveness of other countries, including the EU and UN, in dealing with the global threat from drugs and associated crime.
