§ 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.
