HC Deb 16 April 1981 vol 3 c228W
Mr. McMahon

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of evidence that drugs are freely available at educational establishments in Glasgow, if he will convene a conference of judges, police, doctors and social workers to discuss methods of dealing with the problem.

Mr. Fairgrieve

There is already in Glasgow a liaison committee on the misuse of alcohol and other drugs, whose members are drawn from a range of professions and organisations, including head teachers, police, doctors, pharmacists and social workers. The chairman is a community medicine specialist employed by the Greater Glasgow health board. I understand that the Committee meets quarterly.
