§ Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many people with schizophrenia in Wales have killed themselves or been convicted of manslaughter after returning to the community since April 1991.
§ Mr. Gwilyrn Jones
The information is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. Apart from those who have discharged themselves voluntarily, only a small number of long-stay patients have been discharged. This has only been on the basis of medical and other appropriate professional advice and where a care plan and appropriate alternative facilities are in place.
