Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will estimate the numbers of offenders who will receive prison sentences for all (i) cannabis, (ii) heroin and (iii) illegal drugs repeat offences in each of the next 10 years if(a) present trends continue and (b) the Government's current policies are successful. [86950]

Mr. Boateng

No. The United Kingdom Anti-Drugs Co-ordinator recently set all national and local agencies and departments the target of reducing levels of repeat offending among drug misusing offenders by 50 per cent. by 2008. Systems are being put in place to monitor progress towards this target and others set under the drugs strategy.
