asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she is satisfied with the facilities in Sheffield for handling burns cases arising from accidents in the city's hot-metal cooling industries.

Burns patients requiring out-patient treatment are seen at one of four designated accident and emergency centres in Sheffield. Some premises are less than satisfactory, but, compared with the average level of national provision, I am satisfied that the accident and emergency facilities available are sufficient for the population served. I am also satisfied that there are sufficient beds for burns patients requiring admission to hospital although no purpose-built accommodation is available for this purpose.
