HC Deb 02 December 1983 vol 49 c631W
Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when was the last occasion when a resident of the Croft House residential home, Holywood, asked for a transfer to another home; and what was the result of the request.

Mr. Chris Patten

On 9 September 1983 the officer in charge of Croft House, Holywood, made a written request on behalf of a resident for a transfer to Loch Cuan House, Newtownards. This was acknowledged by the principal social worker—residential and day care—of the unit of management on 23 September 1983 and the resident's name was placed on the waiting list at Loch Cuan House.
