    Speaker voices ‘deep concern’ at reports of drug-taking in Parliament

    Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle is to raise reports of drug misuse in Parliament with the police “as a priority”.

    Sir Lindsay described reports that traces of cocaine had been found in areas of the Palace of Westminster accessible only to people with parliamentary passes as “deeply concerning”.

    In a statement, he said that he expected to see “full and effective enforcement of the law” on the parliamentary estate.

    Separately, another senior MP suggested sniffer dogs may have to be brought in to check for banned substances.

    A report in the Sunday Times said detection wipes had found traces of cocaine in 11 out of 12 locations tested amid claims of casual use of the class A drug by a group of MPs.

    The paper said that Commons officials received reports last month that cannabis could be smelt in the open space between Portcullis House and 1 Parliament Street.

    The report came as the Government was about to launch a new crackdown on drug use with its 10-year drugs strategy.

    In a statement, Sir Lindsay said: “The accounts of drug misuse in Parliament given to the Sunday Times are deeply concerning – and I will be raising them as a priority with the Metropolitan Police this week.

    “I expect to see full and effective enforcement of the law.

    “While Parliament provides extensive support services for any staff or Members who may need help with drug misuse – and I would encourage anyone struggling with such issues to take up such help – for those who choose to flout the law and bring the institution into disrepute the sanctions are serious.”

    Senior Conservative MP Sir Charles Walker, who chairs the administration committee, suggested drugs sniffer dogs could be deployed.

    “The House of Commons has a long history of using sniffer dogs to detect explosives,” he told the Sunday Times.

    “It may be that we now need to broaden the range of sniffer dogs … to include those which can detect drugs.”

    Passports to be taken off illegal drug users in Boris Johnson’s new crackdown

    The Prime Minister will this week launch a 10-year plan to tackle illegal drug-related crime which will include removing passports and driving licences from offenders, it has been reported.

    The crackdown will also include football-style travel bans, harsher sentences for drug dealers and measures to break up County Lines gangs.

    The Sun reported Boris Johnson will outline “record” funding for addiction treatment and recovery services, with more money promised for the 50 local authorities with the worst drug issues including Middlesbrough, Blackpool and Liverpool.

    “We need to look at new ways of penalising them. Things that will actually interfere with their lives,” Mr Johnson told the paper.

    “So we will look at taking away their passports and driving licences.

    “We’re keeping nothing off the table,” he added.

    The Government announced in July it would establish a new unit to help end illegal drug-related illness and deaths, as the second part of Dame Carol Black’s Independent Review of Drugs was released.

    The first phase of the review, published in February last year, estimated there were 300,000 opiate or crack users in England, and around one million people using cocaine per year.

    Meanwhile, drug misuse poisoning deaths are at a record high, having increased by nearly 80% since 2012.

    Dame Carol’s review also determined the illicit drugs market in the UK is worth £9.4 billion a year, but costs society more than double that figure.

    If health considerations, the cost of crime and societal impacts are combined, the total cost of illegal drugs is £19 billion annually.
