Hello sorry for delay.
If a person was already on court bail for an offence, then commits a new offence or is charged with committing a new offence, then yes, they can be given bail for the new matter.
However, if the new offence is serious, which possession with intent to supply class A is, then as the new alleged offence was committed whilst on bail, ALL bail can be revoked and the person sent to prison on remand.

If the person has been charged, the court refusing bail only gets to hear part of the evidence in relation to a bail application.
i would assume it was the magistrates who refused bail?
Is the case going to Crown court?
Then in that case, if it was magistrates who refused bail, then your lawyers can apply for a bail application at the crown court.
The problem would be that the new charge was allegedly committed whilst on bail, so bail was breached. The court would look at that as a breach of trust whilst on bail. The new offence is serious, so the judge when considering bail would have to consider likelihood of committing further offences whilst on bail. This new allegation would show that as a risk as they have already allegedly done that.
Your very welcome, make sure the lawyer makes the bail application ASAP.
