HC Deb 21 January 1998 vol 304 c577W
Mr. Ronnie Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drug-related crimes there were in Northumberland in each of the last three years for which figures are available. [24026]

Mr. Michael

Figures on the number of drug-related crimes are not available either nationally or for Northumberland because of the difficulty of identifying and separating drug-related offences from other sorts of offending in order to produce dependable statistics. Recorded crime is generally collected and published according to the type of offence as defined by statute.
