HC Deb 26 June 1985 vol 81 cc415-6W
82. Sir Philip Goodhart

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action he is taking to prevent the smuggling of drugs through those territories in the Caribbean for which the United Kingdom has responsibility; and what further action he plans to take in the next 12 months.

Mr. Renton

We support the anti-drugs measures being taken by Governments of Dependent Territories. In pursuit of this we have provided expatriate personnel and substantial funds for purchasing equipment and improving security. Close co-operation has also been maintained with United States law enforcement agencies, the United Nations and other competent international authorities. This policy will be actively pursued in the year ahead.
