§ 30. Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many mentally handicapped boys and girls are on the waiting list at the latest available date to enter medium security units in each of the area health authorities in the South Yorkshire district.
§ Sir George Young
It is not envisaged that children or younger adolescents will be admitted to regional secure psychiatric units save in exceptional circumstances. I am informed that no children or adolescents have been identified by the area health authorities in South Yorkshire as suitable for admission to secure units in the Trent region when these are established.
