§ 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.
