Drug Abuse

Volume 447: debated on Thursday 8 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what funding has been allocated to (a) Stoke-on-Trent, (b) Nottingham and (c) Birmingham in 2005-06 for drug services in the city; and what each figure represents per capita. (74111)

Funding is allocated centrally to Drug Action Teams, who provide funding for local services that are appropriate to local needs. In 2005-06, funding streams which contributed to drug services at a local level included the Building Safer Communities Fund; the Drug Interventions Programme main grant; the Drug Strategy Partnership Support Grant; the Pooled Treatment Budget; and the Young People Substance Misuse Partnership Grant. Local partnerships also received funding for specific projects or programmes under the Drug Interventions Programme which were operating in the area, such as additional throughcare and aftercare provision, Restriction on Bail, the Rent Deposit Scheme, or the combined Criminal Justice Integrated Team-Prolific and Priority Offender scheme. Full details of funding for Stoke-on Trent, Nottingham and Birmingham in 2005-06 are provided in the attached document.

Population figures for Stoke-on Trent, Nottingham and Birmingham are 238,000, 275,000 and 992,000 respectively. The funding allocations for each area on a per capita basis would therefore be £11.74 for Stoke-on Trent, £23.32 for Nottingham and £18.41 for Birmingham.
