15. To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate he has made of the number of cocaine users in (a) 1997 and (b) 2006. (127804)

We do not have a figure for 1997, however we know that while the number of users of cocaine powder increased significantly, to about 769,000 in 2005-06, use of amphetamines decreased and overall use of stimulant drugs has remained stable over this period.
