HC Deb 01 May 1963 vol 676 c107W
Mr. Dempsey

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will encourage and assist local authorities to provide special accommodation for old people who are frail but ambulant, in addition to eventide homes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Noble

Yes. The plans submitted by local authorities for new welfare homes show that the increasing need for special accommodation for frail but ambulant old people is generally well understood.
