HC Deb 27 November 1992 vol 214 cc857-8W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what measures he proposes to limit drug abuse in Wales.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Clwyd, North-West (Mr. Richards) on 2 November 1992 at column8.

Mr. Richards

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what support is available to local authorities in Wales for anti-drug and drug awareness campaigns.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

Resources totalling some £3 million are allocated annually to meet the costs of drug prevention, treatment and rehabilitation, of which £450,000 is allocated to local education authorities and £200,000 for the employment of health education/ promotion officers (drugs) in each health authority. Other projects also undertake prevention work, but it is not possible to separate costs.
