Chairman:   Today we will examine special report No. 64 of the Comptroller and Auditor General on drug addiction treatment and rehabilitation.

Today’s session relates to the justice element of service delivery covered in the report of the Comptroller and Auditor General.

We will also look at the new proposals emanating from the new drugs strategy published last week....
