HC Deb 14 June 1982 vol 25 c209W
Mr. McCrindle

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has received a copy of the Women's Institute report on glue-sniffing; and if he will take further action to combat the habit.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

No; but I am aware of the concern about solvent among young people expressed at the recent annual meeting of the National Federation of Women's Institutes. Solvent misuse is being tackled in the community by statutory and voluntary services working together with parents, and sometimes retailers, in ways best suited to local needs. I would refer my hon. Friend to my announcement on 20 April of steps the Government are taking to support this work.—[Vol. 22, c. 243–6.]
