§ Mr. Stallard
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he has plans to build a new resettlement unit in Battersea, south-west London.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The Department has outline planning permission to build a resettlement unit on the site of the former Battersea general hospital. However, the Department may not need to build this unit provided that the needs of the people who would use it can be catered for in other ways. I hope to be able to make an announcement about this shortly.
