To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how many (a) male and (b) female prisoners were serving prison sentences on 1 September for offences of importing controlled drugs;(2) if he will enumerate by nationalities the prisoners serving sentences on 1 September for offences of importing controlled drugs, and the prisons in which they are serving their sentences.

The only readily available information on the types of drugs offence does not separately distinguish females or nationality; it is published annually in "Prison Statistics England and Wales" (table 1(a) of the latest volume, for 1989, Cm. 1221), copies of which are in the Library.
