HC Deb 29 July 1971 vol 822 cc147-8W
49. Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has for expansion of the industrial rehabilitation service in the next few years.

Mr. Dudley Smith

The present unit at Birmingham will be replaced by a larger unit and new units will be built at Portsmouth and in East London. Two part residential units near Preston and in South-East London will replace the present residential unit at Egham. These developments, and some expansion in existing units, will increase the number of places from 2,377 to about 2,750.
