asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what decisions has been reached about the future location of the regional specialist units now at the Brook Hospital, Woolwich; and for what reasons.

None. It is for the South-East Thames Regional Health Authority to consider the matter in the light of the intended future pattern of services in the Greenwich and Bexley area, on which it awaits proposals from the area health authority. However, I have told the regional health authority of my preliminary view that it would not be desirable to move further work of this kind into Central London, particularly when this would mean so heavy a concentration of neurological and neurosurgical services at one end of the region.
