43. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prosecutions have taken place in Bristol for the possession and sale of Indian hemp and reefer cigarettes; and what special methods are being adopted to prevent this.

In the three years ended 31st December last nine persons were convicted in Bristol of unlawful possession and two of unlawful import of this drug. The police co-operate with Customs officers and with inspectors of the Home Office in the suppression of traffic in dangerous drugs.
