HC Deb 02 February 1971 vol 810 c318W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what advice he is seeking from the World Health Organisation's Expert Advisory Panel on Drug Dependence, on the prevention of drug-taking among school pupils.

Mr. Alison

My Department's consultant adviser on drug addiction, Dr. P. H. Connell, is a member of this Panel and was a member of the World Health Organisation Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, whose Eighteenth Report, made in 1970, includes some advice on the prevention of drug dependence in school-children. The World Health Organisation intend to explore this matter further.
