The House of Lords EU Home Affairs, Health and Education Sub-Committee, chaired by Lord Hannay of Chiswick, conducted an inquiry into the EU Drugs Strategy. The report was published on 16 March 2012 and was debated by the House on 19 July 2012.
The inquiry considered what form the next EU Drugs Strategy for 2013-2020 should take. The report called for better and more focused Drugs Strategy, including more comparable statistics, more research, and more aid to help developing countries to diversify away from drug production. The Committee considered that the EU must become more effective in its fight against drugs trafficking, and should call on Member States to be more ready to learn from each other’s experiences and to encourage cross-border dialogue between their local governments and cities.
