HC Deb 08 June 1999 vol 332 c282W
Mr. Clifton-Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many council-managed residential and nursing homes have been closed in the Leeds, Central constituency in the last two years; how many people were affected; and what the cost was of the closures including the relocation of the occupants. [85707]

Mr. Hutton

Details of home closures and the attached costs are not collected centrally. We understand, however, that Leeds City Council manages 25 residential care homes for older people and that over the last two years four homes were closed. These homes accommodated 163 people. For further details on location, costs and any alternative arrangements made, the hon. Member may wish to contact the local authority direct.
