PUBLISHED April 25, 2005

The Conservatives today pledged a tenfold increase in the number of drug treatment centres as part of "tough measures" to reduce violent crime.

Theresa May, the party's shadow spokeswoman for families, said an extra 22,500 residential drug rehabilitation places would be created to reduce drug-related crime as part of a six-point law and order action plan.
