(2) how many children held in assessment centres in Scotland are held prior to appearing at children's hearings; and how many are being held under an order of the children's hearings for assessment, respectively;

Numerous day clubs for the elderly are provided by local authorities and voluntary bodies but statistics about these are not collected centrally. Local authority returns show one local authority and five voluntary day centres for the elderly in existence at 31st December 1972.
