§ Mr. Bob Ainsworth
The drug testing pilot programme began in three sites, Nottingham, Staffordshire and Hackney, between July and December 2001 under the relevant provisions of the Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000. It will run for two-years and is subject to a full independent evaluation.
The programme is being extended to an additional six sites to enhance the evaluation process.
An interim process evaluation report is to be published as Research Findings 176 on 30 May, with a further interim report in Spring 2003, on the emerging learning from the programme.
