HC Deb 06 June 1996 vol 278 cc509-10W
Mr. Michael Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he will publish the fourth report of the youth treatment service group; and if he will make a statement. [32062]

Mr. Bowis

Copies of the report have been placed in the Library today. I have accepted the recommendations in the report and charged the management of the Glenthorne youth treatment centre with its implementations. Following this report and the closure of the St. Charles YTC, the group has now completed its task.

I am grateful to Mrs. Winifred Tumim and her colleagues on the group for the valuable work they have done over the years. Mr. Tom White, who was a member of the group, has agreed to continue to make independent visits to the Glenthorne youth treatment centre.
