HC Deb 12 April 2002 vol 383 cc628-9W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the PSA target of a reduction in the level of reoffending by drug misusing offenders(a) was met by March 2001 and (b) has since been exceeded. [47233]

Mr. Bob Ainsworth

[holding answer 10 April 2002]: The Public Service Agreement target currently is: to reduce levels of repeat offending amongst drug misusing offenders by 25 per cent by 2005 (and by 50 per cent by 2008). There is no interim target set for 2001.

We are currently reviewing the drugs strategy targets and progress against them to ensure we still have the right balance and focus.
