HC Deb 01 July 1996 vol 280 c308W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment his Department has recently undertaken of the extend of racial discrimination in respect of drugs enforcement and penalties. [34658]

Mr. Maclean

The police have conducted ethnic monitoring of stops and searches since April 1993, and ethnic monitoring was extended from 1 April this year to include arrests and cautions, among other matters. Drugs enforcement is not separately identified in ethnic monitoring.
