asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received from interested bodies on the report of the Jay committee on the care of the mentally handicapped; what consultations he has held and with whom; when he expects to announce a decision on the proposals; and if he will make a statement.
I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave the hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mr. Beith) on 7 February.—[Vol. 978, c. 322.]
