HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c207W
Mr. Dempsey

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has approved the plans for the new Senior Occupation Centre at Airdrie; and what is the nature of the accommodation proposed, the estimated cost and the starting date.

Mr. Ross

Revised plans submitted on 29th October were approved last week. The centre will provide training and recreation for about 40 handicapped children and young people of both sexes who will attend by day. The estimated cost is £55,000 and the town council hopes that work will start early in the new year.
