Answered by: Steve Brine
Answered on: 10 October 2017

As set out in the 2017 Drugs Strategy, the complexity and pervasiveness of drug misuse and the harms it causes means that no one department can tackle it alone. The Home Office remains the lead department for policy on drugs and implementation of the Strategy working closely with the Department of Health, Ministry of Justice and other interested Government Departments and agencies, and there are no plans to change this.
