§ 50. Mr. J. Johnson
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the shortage of accommodation for spastic children in the West Midlands; and what steps he is taking in this matter.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
According to my information, there is no special shortage of hospital beds for the treatment of spastic children except for those who are also mentally defective. I understand that my right hon. Friend the Minister of Education is now conducting a national survey of physically handicapped, including spastic, children who may require education in special schools.
