I refer the hon. Gentleman to my answer of 22 January 2007, Office Report, column 1495W. Dedicated drug courts are being piloted by the Department for Constitutional Affairs at Leeds and West London magistrates courts and an independent evaluation of the pilots will be complete by summer 2007. This will determine if this drug court model delivers benefits and will inform the potential for extended operation.
