§ Mr. Mayhew
This report by the advisory council on the misuse of drugs recommends a number of initiatives in clinical practice, in the provision of special facilities in both the prison system and the community, and in extending information and research. The recommendations have been drawn to the attention of prison medical officers, who will, we are sure, take into account in the treatment of drug dependants in prison those which are essentially matters of clinical judgment. Proposals arising under the other recommendations will be considered as resources allow. The need to pay continuing attention to the effectiveness of their services is accepted by all those involved in the treatment and rehabilitation of drug-dependent offenders.
