I call for a full debate in this House on the drugs issue. At a meeting yesterday of the Joint Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality we heard the experiences of a very intelligent woman, Ms Marie Metcalfe, who has spent 16 years working in a community drugs project. The assistant Garda Commissioner, Mr. John Twomey, was also in attendance. Reference was made during the meeting to a recent headline in the media stating that kids were out selling drugs because gardaí were busy at water protests. Ms Metcalfe said that while she welcomed that two new drugs units were set up in the Dublin before Christmas last, resources are lacking. She also noted that the situation had worsened recently because gardaí had to leave particular areas to police anti-water-charge protests. The assistant Garda Commissioner confirmed that the water protests did require resources and that this resulted in resources being taken from other areas. He also stated that while An Garda Síochána was committed to tackling drugs as part of the national drugs strategy, it was not possible to have gardaí in two places at the same time. People need to consider which is the important issue - a €160 water charge or the damage caused to communities by drugs. I would welcome a full debate on the drugs issue.
Also, I support the call made by Deputy David Stanton at yesterday's meeting for the appointment of a Minister of State with responsibility for drugs and the establishment of a mini Criminal Assets Bureau in this area. This is such an important issue and we should have a full debate on it.
