Tories take tough line on crime

PUBLISHED October 6, 2004

The Conservatives will reveal how a Tory government would take tough action to tackle crime at their annual conference in Bournemouth on Wednesday.

Shadow home secretary David Davis will say the fight against drug crime will be their top law and order priority.
He will pledge to accelerate the introduction of random drug-testing of pupils to keep narcotics out of school. And he will promise to raise the number of residential drug rehabilitation places from 2,000 to 20,000.
