I propose to take Questions Nos. 576 and 587 together.
The overall aim of the Government's drugs strategy is to provide an effective, integrated response to the problems posed by drug misuse. Since 1997, local drugs task forces have also been set up in areas experiencing the worst levels of drug misuse, particularly heroin. The task forces bring together key State agencies to work with the local community and voluntary groups to develop appropriate responses to the local drug problem. In addition, the National Drugs Strategy Team, whose membership is drawn from Government Departments, State agencies and the community and voluntary sector, support and oversee the activities of the local drugs task forces.
