HC Deb 08 December 1998 vol 322 cc158-9W
22. Mrs. Ann Winterton

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on progress with the Government's anti-drugs strategy in Scotland following the appointment of the United Kingdom anti-drugs co-ordinator. [61285]

Mr. Galbraith

Following the publication of the White Paper "Tackling Drugs to Build a Better Britain", my right hon. Friend and I have asked the Scottish Advisory Committee on Drug Misuse and the Drug Action Teams in Scotland to consider further development of the Government's drugs strategy for Scotland.

We expect to issue an enhanced drugs strategy framework for Scotland in the first part of 1999.
