158. Deputy Finian McGrathasked the Minister for Health if he will meet a delegation from the drugs task force in order to deal with the drugs crisis.  [37604/14]

Minister for Health (Deputy Leo Varadkar): The membership of the Oversight Forum on Drugs which I chair, includes representatives of the networks of the chairs of the Local and Regional Drug and Alcohol Task Forces. Both the chairs and the coordinators of the Local and Regional Drug and Alcohol Task Forces are represented on the National Coordinating Committee for Drug and Alcohol Task Forces. These arrangements ensure that national policy on drugs is informed by the work of the Task Forces. In addition, in line with the National Drugs Strategy, I plan to arrange a meeting with the chairs and coordinators of the Task Forces in due course.
