HC Deb 03 August 1961 vol 645 c214W
61. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what decisions he has reached about those patients in Broadmoor Hospital whose discharge has been recommended by the Mental Health Review Tribunal; and how many cases are involved.

Mr. R. A. Butler

In four out of the 88 cases which they have so far considered the Tribunal have advised discharge; in two of these cases I have not felt able to accept the Tribunal's advice, and I have the other two at present under consideration.
