asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the shortage of accommodation in the North-West area for mentally defectives, in particular, children, he will consider arranging for Keith Harding, particulars of whose case have already been sent to him, to be accommodated in an area where a vacancy is available, in view of the fact that this child has been awaiting admission since March, 1952.
