HC Deb 26 February 1987 vol 111 cc342-3W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give the figures on expenditure on alcohol abuse and on drug abuse for each of the last 10 years for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

I regret that information is not available in the form requested since in such areas as enforcement and treatment much expenditure on alcohol and drug misuse is not separately identified.
