Praise for drug and alcohol strategy

A politician leading the Chief Minister’s drug and alcohol strategy has paid tribute to the team which helped bring the plan to fruition.

Bill Malarkey MHK says the team, which is being cut as the Department of Home Affairs tries to save £500,000, has been a real success.

Its job will be taken over by a steering group made up of people from various agencies both inside and outside government.

Mr Malarkey says the strategy has made a real impact over the last 10 years.
