§ Mr. Malone
Site visits to all the units have been made and, with the agreement of the relevant directors, copies of the reports together with the conclusions of the site visit teams have been placed in the Library. One report is outstanding and will be placed in the Library shortly. The outcome of all visits is favourable and Department of Health funding will continue. The future of the units will be secured by agreeing a172W long-term programme for each and, at the same time, creating opportunities for all directors to tender competitively for additional research commissions.
