Report

Drink and food spiking

20 Jul 2007
Description

This report concludes that there appears to be no gap in the criminal law as it applies to very serious offences involving drink-spiking. But the committee determined that there should be a particular drink and food spiking offence to fill a gap in the operation of the criminal law at the lower end of the criminal law spectrum, and has carefully crafted an offence to do the job. This report outlines the elements of that offence.

The report also surveys the evidence on the current operation of the law in relation to these offences.
