To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many visits have been made to France by Department of Health (a) officials and (b) Ministers to look at drug treatment regimes in the last five years. [121232]

We are not aware of any visits to France in the last five years by Department of Health Ministers or officials to look specifically at drug treatment regimes.However, there is an exchange of information with the rest of Europe, on drugs and drug treatment, via the United Kingdom focal point. The UK focal point is one element of a European network of drugs information centres. The network is co-ordinated by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction, a specialised agency for the European Union.
