To ask the Secretary of State for Health according to the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System, how many clients in each local authority structured drug treatment (a) had a child aged 16 years or under and (b) were living with a child aged 16 years or under in each of the last 10 years.

Although the data requested are collected via the National Drugs Treatment Monitoring System, the National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse (NTA) have identified problems with the quality of these data and it believes that releasing these data in their current form would be misleading. The NTA are addressing these data quality issues and expect to publish these data, with an assessment of their quality, alongside their annual statistics release in October 2009.
