asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will take steps to improve the provision of long-stay accommodation for geriatric patients in the Sandwell area.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The Sandwell health authority have several important developments planned for the next decade which should both improve existing facilities for elderly patients, and result in a virtual doubling of the number of geriatric beds by 1991.
