asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what advice he has given to chief officers of police on the need to alert schools and other institutions on the hazards and risks associated with glue sniffing.
None. This is not primarily a matter for the police, although they are generally aware of the risks associated with the dangerous practice. I understand that the booklet "Health Education in Schools", published by the Department of Education and Science draws the attention of teachers to the dangers of glue sniffing.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what records are maintained in each locality on the number of cases reported of glue sniffing.
I have no information about such records: action to deal with glue sniffing would be primarily a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection
