§ 15. Mr. David Walder
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what new categories of adult patients are now admitted to Calderstones Hospital, Whalley, Lancashire; and what categories are allowed outside the hospital unsupervised.
§ Mr. Walder
I thank the hon. Gentleman for that reply, but I must bring to his notice the local situation and ask whether he is aware that in the last 12 months there has been an increase in the number of incidents of vandalism, indecency and trespass which, were it not for the tolerance of the local population, might well have become matters for the courts and the police.
