§ Mr. Maclean
The recommendations of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs in relation to Temazepam have implications for a number of Government Departments.
I am considering the council's recommendations in consultation with ministerial colleagues. I am afraid that this has taken longer than I would have wished. I hope to be able to announce a decision before too long.
