HC Deb 08 December 1971 vol 827 c334W
Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will encourage local hospital boards to enter into discussion with local authorities as to the possibility of developing joint housing projects which could be used for the rehabilitation of elderly patients.

Mr. Alison

Special housing for the elderly has mainly a preventive and supportive rôle. Hospital and local authorities have been advised to include local authority housing departments in their joint planning of services for the elderly.
