asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many boys will be catered for in the proposed intermediate centre at Blairgowrie; and where they will come from;

  • (2) what will be the cost to the Scottish Office of opening the intermediate centre in Blairgowrie;
  • (3) how many intermediate centres the Scottish Office plans to open in Tayside during 1980.
  • A voluntary group proposes to provide an intermediate treatment scheme for eight boys from the area of Blairgowrie, Coupar Angus and Alyth. My Department's grant is estimated at £10,000 for the purchase of a van and some building work and £15,000 per year for salaries. Intermediate treatment schemes are provided by local authorities and voluntary organisations, and I am not aware of any other plans to extend existing provision in Tayside.
