§ 83. Mr. W. T. Williams
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department 144W in how many criminal cases involving acts of violence the violent behavour has been attributed to the use of the drug preludin by the persons charged.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
I have recently been informed by a prison medical officer of two cases in which the taking of preludin associated with alcohol, and in one case with mental illness, has been followed by violence. I regret that there are no figures available about the number of offences of violence in which the persons charged have been taking preludin.
