A report in the paper this morning that the trade in heroin and crack cocaine in South Wales is worth £130 million a year is very depressing. It underlines what we were told by the Chief Constable of North Wales a few weeks ago. He said that operations by the Police and Customs can only ever stop about 20% of all the drugs coming into Wales. On that basis this trade is set to increase unless some very drastic action is taken.
