No plans for introducing drug testing for hair

Wed, 08 May 2013

There are no plans to introduce a proactive hair drug testing strategy.

That’s according to the Home Affairs Minister who says the need for such a system hasn’t been raised by the police, prison, probation service or courts.

Juan Watterson was responding to a question posed by Zac Hall in the House of Keys yesterday.

The Onchan MHK wanted to know if the seized assets fund could be used to fund such a service.

Mr Hall was told to raise the matter with the Police Advisory Group where it would be determined if the idea needed considering.
