To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people have been issued with (a) drug rehabilitation requirements and (b) a drug treatment and testing order in (i) England and Wales, (ii) Greater
London and (iii) each police force area in each year since 1998. 
Claire Ward: The drug treatment and testing order (DTTO), a community sentence aimed at breaking the link between drug misuse and offending, was rolled out to courts across England and Wales from October 2000, following successful pilots under the management of Merseyside, South-East London and Gloucestershire Probation Services from 1 October 1998 to 31 March 2000.
From April 2005, the drug rehabilitation requirement (DRR) gradually replaced the DTTO as the primary means for adult offenders to address their drug misuse as part of a community order or suspended sentence order. The number of DTTOs and DRRs made in each probation area, including London, and across England and Wales in each year since 1998 is shown in the following table. It is not possible to provide data for each police force area. These figures have been drawn from administrative data systems which may be amended at any time. Although care is taken when processing and analysing the returns, the detail collected is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.
