Watson, Rory (1996) Irish determination on drugs. British Medical Journal , 313 , (7051) , p. 190.

During its six month presidency of the European Union, the Irish government will be focussing on the creation of jobs and a campaign against drugs. Four of the six fields of action the Irish will promote in the coming months are based on law enforcement and only two are based on the thoery of harm reduction. Despite some criticism, this change of focus is gradually gaining support as governments continue to count the cost of the drugs trade. Dublin wants to see more efficient cooperation in protecting the European Union's external borders to prevent drugs being imported.
