HC Deb 26 October 1976 vol 918 c137W
86. Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many youth treatment centres exist at present; and what is the total number of places they provide.

Mr. Moyle

There is at present one youth treatment centre—at Brentwood, Essex—which provides 33 places for the care, control and long-term treatment of highly disturbed boys and girls. A second centre, which will provide a further 62 places, is being built at Birmingham and is due to be completed next summer.
