Don Foster signs EDM 2404 - EVIDENCE-BASED DRUGS POLICY

Don Foster signs EDM 2404 - EVIDENCE-BASED DRUGS POLICY. It reads:

That this House notes the serious harm caused by drugs; recognises the need for evidence-based policy making with a clear focus on prevention and harm-reduction; and calls on the Government to establish an independent panel tasked with carrying out an impact assessment of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, reviewing the approach adopted by other countries, and making recommendations for reform.
