asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has studied the report "Day Care Centres" by Jean Symons, published by the Centre on Environment for the Handicapped; what action he will be taking; and if he will make a statement.
I have received a copy of the report, which I have studied with great interest. It has been brought to the attention of the appropriate officials within the Department. An article about the report by Mrs. Symons appeared in the December edition of "Social Work Service" magazine published by the Department. This is circulated to directors of social services for the staff of their departments and to voluntary organisations in the personal social services field. Copies of the report and of the magazine have been placed in the Library.
