Written answers (Question to Health)

The level of funding provided to each of the Drug and alcohol Task Forces operating in County Dublin for the years 2011 to 2018 is set out in the following table. A breakdown of the geographical area covered by each task force can be found at the following website: health.gov.ie/healthy-Ireland/drugs-policy/local-and-regional-task-forces/.

I strongly believe that resources should be directed towards interventions that are most effective in reducing problem substance use. Measuring the effectiveness of responses to the drug problem is therefore an important objective of public policy. Towards this end, my Department will develop a performance measurement system by 2020 which will improve accountability across all sectors, including the Task Forces.
