HC Deb 27 April 1971 vol 816 c72W
Mr. John Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many local authorities have day care facilities for people who are too severely mentally handicapped to attend adult training centres.

Mr. Alison

This information is not available centrally. Day care for severely handicapped adults living at home takes different forms. Some local authorities make special arrangements for them at adult training centres; others provide home training; daily hospital attendance may be arranged. This is a field in which we look to social service and hospital authorities to plan developments together.
