HC Deb 06 December 1968 vol 774 c589W
Mr. Monro

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many new places will be made available in Dumfries and Galloway, and in which hospitals, during 1969 for mentally disturbed children; and if he will make a statement on future developments in this area.

Mr. Ross

None. There is already a 55 bedded unit at the Crichton Royal Hospital for such children up to the age of 12, and the Regional Board have no plans for any further development there for this purpose in the near future.
