The hon. Lady will know that the Government have been very clear, as have previous Governments, that drugs and the crime related to drug gangs are leading to serious violence and all sorts of other serious problems in society and other types of crime.

That is exactly why I commissioned the independent review, by Dame Carol Black, on drugs misuse.
