Home Affairs Committee
Report published on 23 October 2015. Government response published 20 January 2016.
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.
Evidence given by Professor Les Iversen, Chair, Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs; Rt Hon Mike Penning MP, Minister for Policing, Crime and Criminal Justice, Home Office; Dr Owen Bowden-Jones, Consultant Psychiatrist and Lead Clinician for Club Drug Clinic, Addictions Directorate, Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust, and Jan King, Chief Executive, and Jeremy Sare, Director for Communications and Operations, Angelus Foundation.
