To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proposals she has for ensuring that specialist psychiatric services for young people continue to be available.

We recognise the importance of child and adolescent mental health services and are currently involved in a number of initiatives aimed at promoting their development. These include research and other service-based studies and preparation of a purchasing guide for the relevant health, social services and education authorities.
