asked the Minister of Health when approval will be given to the scheme proposed by the Worcester County Council, in co-operation with other local authorities, for the provision of accommodation for mental defectives; and whether he is aware that the huts which it is proposed to adapt have been empty for the past three months and that their adaptation can only be completed by next winte3r if an early decision is reached by the several Departments concerned.

I have approved the scheme in principle and have asked the Ministry of Works to undertake the work.
