asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what estimate he has made of the number of persons indulging in solvent abuse in Scotland for the latest convenient period; and what further action he plans to take to combat the practice.

Detailed information about the number of persons involved in solvent abuse is not available centrally. I am aware of the concern of hon. Members and the public on this matter and I propose to have further consultations with those concerned on possible approaches to the problem.
