Lord Peston

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they will publish a report on the progress of the Home Office's Drugs Prevention Initiative.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Home Office (Lord Williams of Mostyn)

We are publishing tomorrow the Drugs Prevention Initiative's seventh annual progress report. The report summarises encouraging progress. An extensive and innovative programme is now providing some useful findings about effective community-based drugs prevention work. The programme aims to show more fully by March 1999 what action communities themselves can take to tackle local drugs problems. We shall be placing a copy of the report in the Library tomorrow at 10.30 am.
