§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement regarding the curtailment of the drug problem in Hong Kong.
§ Mr. Luard
My right hon. Friend is satisfied that, although drug addiction remains one of Hong Kong's major problems, the action now being taken by the Hong Kong Government is on a scale commensurate with the problem. Eradication of drug abuse is a long-term goal, but there are encouraging signs that the problem is being contained.
