HC Deb 03 May 1972 vol 836 c139W
50. Mr. McElhone

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is prepared to take to encourage the building of special hospital units for young chronically sick and disabled persons by regional hospital boards.

Mr. Monro:

Regional hospital boards are aware of their responsibilities to do their best to provide suitable accommodation for the young chronically sick. They will be assisted in this by the higher level of resources for hospital building now available.
