§ Mr. Geraint Howells
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what measures he intends to take to seek to prevent the growing incidence of drug abuse in rural areas; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mellor
The many measures we are taking are set out in "Tackling Drug Misuse: a summary of the Government's strategy" which we sent to hon. Members at the end of March. Our aim is to prevent drug misuse wherever it may occur, whether in rural areas or elsewhere.
