John Mann and Bob Ainsworth clash on drugs policy


Former minister Bob Ainsworth, who previously had responsibility for drugs policy, claims he would resign if he was still a minister to develop his ideas on legalising drugs.

Mr Ainsworth, a Home Office minister under Tony Blair, said successive governments' approaches had failed, leaving criminal gangs in control.
