§ 17. Mr. Moonman
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on the after-care facilities available for the mentally sick and mentally handicapped in Northern Ireland; and how this compares with the rest of the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Carter
A wide range of after-care facilities is provided by the Health and Social Services Boards and voluntary organisations. These facilities and services, in general, compare well with those provided in Great Britain. They are extended and improved continuously as additional human and financial resources become available.
