The Home Office does not hold the information requested centrally.

On 28 May, we introduced the Psychoactive Substances Bill in the House of Lords to create a blanket ban on the supply of psychoactive substances.

The Bill will ban the sale, supply, production and distribution of psychoactive substances for human consumption and give police and local authorities greater powers to tackle this reckless trade.
