HC Deb 01 July 1985 vol 82 cc16-7W
Mr. Amess

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what amounts of class A drugs were seized by the police between 1980 and 1985 in each region.

Mr. Mellor

Information on the total amounts of class A drugs seized by the police in the United Kingdom for 1980 to 1983 was given in table 1.3 of "Statistics of the Misuse of Drugs, United Kingdom, Supplementary Tables 1983"; corresponding information for 1984 and 1985 is not yet available. Provision of a breakdown by region would involve disproportionate cost.
