HC Deb 27 November 1995 vol 267 c473W
Mr. Rathbone

To ask the Lord President of the Council what plans he has to distribute the leaflet, "Tackling Drugs Together: Information for Parents, Businesses and Communities"; and when the distribution will take place. [1500]

Mr. Newton

Over 5,000 copies of the leaflet, which is intended to involve local communities in the Government's strategy to tackle the misuse of drugs, have already been sent to the 105 drug action teams which have recently been set up across England, in accordance with the White Paper "Tackling Drugs Together". Copies have also been placed in the Library of the House.

The drug action teams are determining the distribution arrangements for the leaflet in the light of their local knowledge and developing plans to engage their communities—including parents and businesses—in tackling local drugs problems. Some drug action teams are, for example, planning to distribute the leaflet to all GP surgeries.
