HC Deb 01 May 1963 vol 676 c105W
46. Mr. Millan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to provide occupational centres for adults suffering from physical and mental handicaps.

Mr. Noble

Local health and welfare authorities now have a duty to provide suitable facilities for handicapped and mentally disordered persons. During the last year I have approved schemes put forward by authorities for new senior occupational centres in Edinburgh, Falkirk and Alloa and an extension of the existing centre at Leven, and I will consider favourably any further proposals on these lines.
