§ Mr. Vaz
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, in the light of the recommendations made in the discussion document entitled "No Second Chance" produced for the Trent regional health authority on the development of terminal care services, he will give consideration to providing resources for the establishment of a regional centre for palliative care for the terminally ill in Leicestershire.
§ Mrs. Currie
I understand that the Trent regional health authority recently decided in principle to proceed with the planning of a regional centre for palliative care. It is for the region to decide whether and how such a centre should be funded from within its overall allocation and where it should be located. I suggest the hon. Member contacts the chairman of Trent regional health authority for any further information.
