HC Deb 12 April 1989 vol 150 c559W
49. Mr. Paice

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent steps have been taken to help counteract international drug trafficking.

Mr. Eggar

A United Nations convention against illicit traffic in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances was adopted in December 1988. The United Kingdom has signed subject to ratification. We have also signed bilateral asset seizure agreements with five countries, the most recent with Switzerland on 8 March. Similar arrangements have also been concluded with Bermuda.
