Mr. Coaker: Arrests data for drug offences by offence type are not collected centrally. The available information relates to the number of persons found guilty or cautioned under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 of unlawful supply and possession with intent to supply between 1997 and 2004.
Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts, police forces and other agencies. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
