To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their response to the report of the Drugs, Alcohol and Justice Cross-Party Parliamentary Group’s Charter for Change, published in September.
The Government has noted the recommendations in the report. In July, the Government published a comprehensive new Drug Strategy which aims to reduce drug misuse and increase the numbers recovering from dependence.
The new Drug Strategy sets out a range of actions, to be taken forward at national and local level, that respond to the evolving threats and challenges that continue to emerge from drug misuse. These include changing drugs markets, changing patterns of use and an ageing and more complex group of people who need wide-ranging support to recover.
