§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales which health authorities in Wales currently provide inpatient beds for registered drug addicts;
(2) how many in-patient beds are available in Wales for registered drug addicts.
§ Mr. Mark Robinson
Beds are not provided for registered drug addicts. Where in-patient treatment of drug misusers is required this is provided within the overall mental illness complement. There is a specialist unit for the treatment of drug and alcohol misuse at Whitchurch hospital, Cardiff, with a total bed complement of 21.
