§ Baroness FISHER of REDNAL
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they are yet in a position to give up-to-date information regarding residential care for visually impaired people with other handicaps.
§ Lord CULLEN of ASHBOURNE
Visually impaired people with other handicaps, whether mental or physical, who are not at home are cared for in accommodation provided by local authorities or voluntary bodies or in hospital. Often the visual impairment is not the major handicap. Numbers are comparatively small but detailed information about accommodation for these people is not held centrally.
