Today in Parliament I asked the Prime Minister what the Government is doing to tackle the epidemic of nitrous oxide use amongst young people. In particular I pressed him on what actions he is considering to limit the sale of nitrous oxide and to tackle those who keep cannisters under shop counters as shown in the undercover report by Sky, and are happy to sell to children without any ID checks.
While I welcome the commitment to expedite the review being carried out by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, it was disappointing that the Prime Minister did not commit to bringing forward new legislation to tackle this problem which is causing life changing harm to users, additional pressures on the NHS and blighting many of our communities.
