asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) how many places currently are vacant at county-run residential centres for the elderly in Grimsby and South Humberside, respectively;(2) how many places in old persons' homes in the Grimsby area currently are unfilled owing to the residential social workers' dispute.
The latest available figures indicate that there are at present 47 vacancies in county-run residential homes for the elderly in the Grimsby division, and 34 in homes throughout the rest of South Humberside. It is not possible to estimate how many of the vacant places in the Grimsby division are unfilled as a result of industrial action by residential social workers.
