asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to the experiment made in Robinson and Sherwood's factory, Bristol, in which twenty mental patients have been successfully assisted towards rehabilitation through being employed at this factory under supervision; if he will take steps to encourage other employers to adopt similar schemes; and if he will instruct the regional board to give all the assistance it can in the industrial therapy sponsored by the Glenside Hospital.
