HC Deb 29 January 1986 vol 90 c545W
18. Sir Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is Government policy on the construction of detoxification centres in Scotland.

Mr. John MacKay

The provision of facilities and services for people with alcohol-related problems is a matter for local authorities and health boards.

Voluntary organisations wishing to provide facilities of this nature may be eligible for grant under section 10 of the Social Work (Scotland) Act 1968.
