HC Deb 21 July 1994 vol 247 c498W
Mr. Parry

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on his recent visit to the drugs prevention initiative in Liverpool; and what were his findings.

Mr. Howard

I visited the Home Office drugs prevention initiative team at its offices in Liverpool on 17 June. In addition to meeting the team members, I met representatives of the city council, the health authority and people from some of the local projects that the team is supporting.

I was impressed with the work which the local team were doing to help the local community fight the drug problem. I hope that it will be possible for me to see more of the projects with which they are involved in a future visit.
