HC Deb 07 July 1983 vol 45 c155W
Dr. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the future of Farnham park rehabilitation centre; and if he will consider bringing the centre under the control of a special health authority.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The East Berkshire health authority has initiated formal consultation on a proposal that the Farnham park rehabilitation centre should be closed on a phased basis, commencing with the closure of the in-patient facilities. If the community health council objects to the proposal, but East Berkshire health authority and the regional health authority wish to proceed with the closure, the matter would need to be referred to Ministers for decisions. At this stage we cannot prejudge the outcome of consultation.
