HC Deb 06 July 1973 vol 859 c230W
Mr. Dormand

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the number of day re-establishment centres; and what proposals he has for increasing the number.

Mr. Dean

With the opening of the re-establishment centre at Leeds in January this year the number of day re-establishment centres was increased to 14. Eleven of these centres, as at Leeds, are attached to reception centres, and similar centres are due to open at Sittingbourne in September 1973 and at Southampton at the end of 1974. The extension of re-establishment provision to other possible places remains under consideration.
