§ Mr. Waterson
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to announce his decision on the conclusions reached by his Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs regarding the misuse of the hypnotic temazepam.
§ Mr. Maclean
I am studying the Advisory Council's conclusions in consultation with ministerial colleagues. The consultation process is taking a little longer than at first envisaged, but I hope to reach a decision shortly after Easter.
