Illegal Drugs

On Monday 6th June 2016, MLAs debated the following motion:

“That this Assembly acknowledges with grave concern the impact and extent of drug related incidents, crimes and fatalities in our communities; supports the ongoing work carried out by statutory services, the Public Health Agency and the voluntary and community sector; and calls on the Minister of Justice to work alongside the relevant bodies, to bring forward further measures to raise awareness, and to ensure that the criminal justice system is tough enough to deal robustly with those who are responsible for the menace of drugs on our streets.”
