Drugs and Harm Reduction
Labour Party Manifesto 2020

Labour will put harm reduction at the centre of national drugs policy.

Labour in Government appointed a dedicated Minister of State for drugs policy and commenced the development of a new national drugs strategy.

Our plan for the next five years:

  • Ensure the resources of the criminal justice system are targeted at the pushers and medical supports are focused on the victims of drug abuse
  • Put the Drugs Court on statutory footing and expand its remit across the country
  • Continue to support the concept of medically-supervised injecting centres
  • Increase funding for local and regional drugs taskforces
