§ Mr. Stan Thorne
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he approves of the proposed reduction in the service offered at Rivermead rehabilitation centre from 30 to 20 beds.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
The Oxford regional health authority's proposals for the future size and location of the Rivermead rehabilitation centre are shortly to be put to full and formal consultation. It would not be right to prejudge the matter in advance of that consultation.
