§ Commander Donaldson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has received from Roxburghshire County Council regarding implementation of the Mental Health (Scotland) Act, 1960; what applications it has made to him for the provision of day centres for ineducable and untrainable children; and what schemes it has prepared for the transportation of such children to such centres.
§ Mr. Noble
The county council's scheme for the provision of mental health services was submitted to my Department in 1962. It provides for the establishment of day centres for children who are ineducable and untrainable, and for the conveyance of such children. No centre is yet in operation, but I understand that the county council intends to acquire premises in Hawick for this purpose as soon as possible.
