Cam hits back over drugs
David Cameron has rejected Nick Clegg’s call for a Royal Commission to review the Government’s policies on drugs.
In an interview with the Sun, Mr Clegg described the Prime Minister’s dismissal of MPs’ calls for a commission as a “missed opportunity”, and said it would be part of the Lib Dems’ 2015 manifesto.
But speaking from Brussels, Mr Cameron hit back at the Deputy Prime Minister:
"I don’t rule out taking more steps but I don’t personally think a Royal Commission is the answer and I don’t support the decriminalisation of any drugs that are currently legal."
Earlier, Downing Street said the Prime Minister was satisfied that the current policies on drugs were working. However, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokeswoman conceded the Government needed to do more “in some areas”, adding that policies would be kept under review.
