Dame Carol Black’s review was published on 27 February 2020 and its findings were discussed at the UK Drugs Summit in Glasgow on the same day. The review provided an analysis of drug supply and demand and highlighted the importance of a further stage of the review to develop recommendations on prevention, treatment and recovery. This further review has been announced and will be underway shortly.

Action is being taken to address other findings of the review. The Prime Minister and I are driving a united government response with a new cross-Whitehall Crime and Justice Taskforce to ensure we use every lever at our disposal to fight crime.
