asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has anything to add to his answers about private nursing homes on 21 November 1983, Official Report, columns 67 to 69; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
The information given in the earlier replies to the hon. Member was based on a preliminary analysis of data supplied' by health authorities in the statistical return SBH 212. Final figures for the year ending 31 December 1982 have now been produced and a copy of the analysis, set out in our Department's booklet "Independent Sector Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Clinics in England", is in the Library of the House.
