Drug Seizures

Volume 447: debated on Thursday 8 June 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many drug seizures from pleasure craft were carried out by HM Revenue and Customs in each (a) region and (b) county in each year since 2000. (75244)

The national information for drugs seizures made by HM Revenue and Customs since 2000 is contained in the Annual Reports for HM Customs and Excise and HM Revenue and Customs. The figures for the year ending 31 March 2006 will be published in the next Annual Report.

Information of drug seizures by location cannot be disclosed as this would provide information of value to those seeking to circumvent HM Revenue and Customs’ controls, thereby prejudicing the prevention and detection of crime.

HM Revenue and Customs does not centrally record drug seizures from pleasure craft.
