HC Deb 10 March 1976 vol 907 c264W
Mr. Steen

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) if he will extend the period for which the Rainer Foundation can use Rocklands School, Bath;

(2) if he will initiate discussions with the Rainer Foundation about using Rock-lands School, Bath, for innovatory work concerning adolescent girls and/or intermediate treatment;

(3) if he intends to take possession of Rocklands School, Bath; and, if so, for what purpose.

Dr. Summerskill

The closure of this probation hostel for girls has been agreed with the Rainer Foundation. The future of the premises will be a matter for the Fundation, whose property they are. Some discussions have already taken place with our Department about possible future uses for Rocklands and we shall be willing to arrange for further consultations if the Foundation wishes to put forward new points for consideration.
