asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the investigation into sheltered employment following the Granada Television programme has been completed; and when he expects to receive the report.

Following the Granada Television "World in Action" programme which dealt with the conditions under which work of an industrial type is carried out in adult training centres for mentally handicapped people and day centres for physically handicapped and mentally ill people, I ask my Department to make inquiries into the specific allegations made in the programme and also sought the views of a number of interested organisations. I am pleased to say that my Department has now received all the necessary replies. These are receiving urgent consideration and I shall write to my hon. Friend when this is completed.
