HC Deb 02 February 1970 vol 795 c21W
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.
