§ Mr. Cordle
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many alcoholics there are in Bournemouth known to his Department; and whether he will give support to the proposed day hospital for alcoholics.
§ Sir K. Joseph
Information is not available as to the number of alcoholics in Bournemouth. The proposal to establish a day hospital for alcoholics in the Bournemouth area is under consideration and I expect to reach a decision shortly.
