86 Mr. Gregory asked the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation the plans, if any, he has to establish an independent research body to carry out essential research into the drugs problem; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [21425/97]

The national drugs strategy team is currently preparing proposals regarding research into the cause, effects, trends, etc. of drug misuse, and evaluation of different models of treatment. I intend to consider these proposals, when finalised, following which I will make a submission to the Cabinet committee on social inclusion and drugs which will report to Government on the matter.
