Mr. John D. Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many residents there are in Boyd house at Ards hospital; what is the demand for places at Boyd house; and if he will make a statement about the future of Boyd house.

Mr. Needham

There are 44 residents in Boyd house, with 17 people on the waiting list for admission. The organisation of services at local level is a matter for the health and social services boards. We are not aware of any proposals by the Eastern board relating to the future of Boyd house.
