Misuse of Drugs Act 1991
#6
Mr Speaker,

I’m pleased that the Home Secretary welcomes the opportunity to work constructively with us in order to ensure that this bill is fit for purpose and that we can seek to end the scourge of drug addiction for the British people. 

I’m also happy to answer his question about the amendments from the Opposition. With regard to the proposed timeframe for review processes, we have proposed a review every three years for two key reasons. Essentially, it is about finding the right balance between keeping a close eye on rates and disparities to ensure not too much time elapses before reviews can take place, but equally giving the advisory board enough time to conduct thorough reviews so that considered policy recommendations can be made.
