Report published

The Home Affairs Committee says the potentially "overwhelming" problem of new psychoactive substances (NPS) must be tackled, ahead of the Committee stages of the Bill. The speed at which the Government is proceeding with the legislation means that a number of serious concerns about the Bill have not been addressed.

Terms of reference: Psychoactive substances
