HC Deb 25 February 1988 vol 128 c303W
Mr. Frank Field

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish the report of the Advisory Council on Drug Misuse on AIDS and drug misuse before he responds publicly to the report's recommendations.

Mr. Moore

[holding answer 28 January 1988]: I have recently received the first report on AIDS and drug misuse by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. I am grateful to the council for completing this stage of its work so quickly, and we are giving the report urgent consideration. Meanwhile, I have set in hand arrangements for publishing the report, which I expect to be available in a few weeks.
