HC Deb 21 July 1975 vol 896 c97W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many seriously mentally handicapped people, in Carlisle and Cumbria, respectively, have to stay at home because of lack of suitable accommodation for them.

Dr. Owen

I regret that the information requested is not available, but I understand that there are 12 persons on the priority waiting list for residential homes for the mentally handicapped in Cumbria and 92 on the waiting list for admission to Dovenby Hall Hospital, Cockermouth.
