HC Deb 29 April 1985 vol 78 c49W
Mr. Irving

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many regional and district health authorities have responded to the Department of Health and Social Security circular on drug abuse issued in June 1984; and if he will publish a summary of these responses.

Mr. John Patten

All 14 regional health authorities and two special health authorities have submitted reports to the Department as required by the circular. The reports by regional health authorities contain information obtained from their districts. We propose to publish information derived from these reports shortly.
