To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give the number of police seizures of (a) MDMA, (b) LSD, (c) tranquillisers, (d) cannabis and (e) solvents in Scotland in each year since 1988.

Information on police seizures of MDMA, LSD, and cannabis since 1988 is published in "Statistics of drug seizures and offenders dealt with, United Kingdom, 1991—Scotland tables", a copy of which is in the Library. Tranquillisers, along with hypnotics, although not separately identified in the tables, comprise the main drugs in class C, for which the number of seizures is shown. Solvents are neither illegal substances nor subject to the kind of controls placed on pharmaceutical products; and the question of police seizures does not, therefore, arise.
