§ Mr. O'Halloran
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what consultations have taken place between his Department and the National Society for Mentally Handicapped Children regarding the proposed closure of a home at Pirates Spring, Dymchurch, Kent.
§ Mr. Alison
None. I understand however that Kent County Council has received tentative and informal proposals regarding the future of the home from individual parents with children accommodated there and it will give these representations appropriate consideration.
