Minister for Justice (Mrs. Owen): The problem of drug misuse is a national one, although it is, of course, particularly acute in certain parts of Dublin. The Deputy will be well aware of the measures that are being taken by me, as Minister for Justice, and other Ministers with responsibility in this area. These measures represent the most significant and radical response ever taken in the State to deal with the drugs problem.
