§ 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. 
§ 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.
