§ Mr. R. MORRISON
asked the Home Secretary the number of convictions during the past 12 months for illegal posses- 798W sion of cocaine and similar drugs; and whether this traffic has now decreased?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The statistics in question are not yet available. While it is not possible to speak positively in a matter of this kind, the experience gained in the administration of the Dangerous Drugs Acts indicates that the illicit traffic in these drugs has very much diminished in this country since the institution of control.
