HC Deb 19 March 1998 vol 308 c706W
Mr. Peter Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will institute an inquiry into the management of Netherton Park Assessment Centre in Northumberland. [35067]

Mr. Boateng

No. It is, in the first instance, a matter for Northumberland County Council to decide what action they propose to take in the light of complaints they have received about the management of the Centre. We will monitor the position carefully.
