55 Five of the seven respondents who commented upon changes in availability of illicit Subutex over the preceding six months considered that availability had remained stable while the remaining two respondents reported that availability had become more difficult (Figure 33). The low number of respondents continues to make it difficult to confidently identify any trends in availability.
