HC Deb 09 July 2002 vol 388 c833W
20. Mr. David Marshall

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if she will make a statement on the action being taken to seize the assets of drug barons in Scotland. [65317]

Mrs. McGuire

Strengthening the powers to confiscate illegal gains, from drug dealing and also other serious crimes, is a priority for the Government. The Proceeds of Crime Bill will put in place an enhanced and effective system for seizing assets that have resulted from criminal activity.
