To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment when he last met the UK anti-drugs co-ordinator to discuss the use of illegal drugs in schools and places of work. [109167]

Jacqui Smith

I met the UK anti-drugs co-ordinator at the end of November last year, to discuss the DfEE's contribution to the Government's Anti-Drugs Strategy. We have agreed to meet quarterly in future.

As DfEE Drugs Minister, I also have met Mr. Hellawell regularly in meetings of the Ministerial Steering Group on Drug Misuse.
