§ 84. Mr. Dance
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he is aware of the closure of the day centre for mentally-handicapped children at Lea Hospital, Bromsgrove; if he is aware that parents only received one week's notice of the closure; what steps he proposes to take; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Crossman
The Birmingham Regional Hospital Board has issued a Press statement expressing deep regret for the anxiety caused to patients and parents. The day centre is remaining open and parents of the children who attend have been notified. I am having full inquiries made into this matter.
