Mr. Kennedy

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will initiate, in parallel with he creation of the new national charity for AIDS, the provision of hospice-resource centres in all major population centres in the country; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Newton

We wish to see the development of a range of community care services for people with AIDS and we expect health authorities to consider local needs for hospice provision with appropriate voluntary organisations when deciding what facilities are required.
