How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Nitrous Oxide Sales (2599_15)

Request

How many reports of people selling nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, have you received in 2011? 2012? 2013? 2014? So far in 2015?

 

How many people have been charged for the sale of nitrous oxide (I believe this would be brought under the charge of street vending without a licence) in 2011? 2012? 2013? 2014? So far in 2015?

 

How many of these charges resulted in prosecution? Acquittal? Some other resolution (if possible, can I have the details of how it was resolved)?

 

What was the age of the youngest person reported for selling nitrous oxide?

Response

We have searched our system using key words ‘nitrous’ ‘laughing gas’ and this has returned 9 incidents for the requested period, none of which relate to selling, therefore there is no recorded information held.
