Motion text

That this House recognises the vulnerability of prisoners following their release and susceptibility of substance misusers to overdose; recognises that overdose deaths are preventable with Naloxone; notes that provision of Naloxone remains patchy, particularly in England; further notes that this is hampered by the fragmented criminal justice and health provision; believes it is essential that Naloxone is made available to all prisoners with a history of opiate use upon release; and calls on the Government to take urgent action to prevent further needless deaths by ensuring clear co-ordination of provision.
