§ Mr. Irving
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the seminars for National Health Service planners about provision of hospital hostels which he intended arranging early in 1987 have now been held.
§ Mrs. Currie
Dates and venues have now been agreed for five seminars to spread knowledge of the best ways of providing long-term in-patient care for those people chronically disabled by mental illness, without creating the institutional environment of traditional long-stay wards. The first will be held on 16 October in Birmingham.
