UK BEHIND ON DRUGS EDUCATION

Local authorities should consider whether children of primary school age need drugs education, according to Islington LBC chief executive Eric Dear.

Mr Dear made his remarks to LGC following a seminar in Strasbourg at which he presented the case for local authority involvement in stamping out drugs-pushers.

But he admitted that UK councils were probably behind those in the Netherlands. 'A report came out recently which showed that children are leaving primary school with knowledge of drugs,' he said.

The seminar was organised by the Pompidou Group, a multi-national body which examines crime issues, particularly those related to drugs.
