HC Deb 01 July 1987 vol 118 c115W
Mr. Rowe

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many nursing homes in England and Wales are owned or managed by trade unions affiliated to the Trades Union Congress; how many beds are contained in them; and how many patients received treatment in them in the last year for which figures are available.

Mrs. Currie

Registration and inspection of nursing homes and hospitals in the independent sector is statutorily delegated to district health authorities. I regret that this information is not collected centrally.
