asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the report of the Development Team for the Mentally Handicapped on conditions at Queen Mary's hospital, Carshalton, Surrey.

The Development Team for the Mentally Handicapped visited Queen Mary's hospital, Carshalton in May 1979 at the request of the Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth area health authority (teaching). The team's report was sent to the AHA(T) in October 1979 and I understand that the AHA(T)'s officers have been considering the recommendations and that some improvements have been made. It is the responsibility of the AHA(T) to decide what action should be taken on the team's recommendations and the report is to be considered by the authority in the near future.
