asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what recent representations he has received regarding geriatric and psychogeriatric provision in Hertfordshire ; and if he will make a statement.

We have received letters from my hon. Friends the Members for Hitchin (Mr. Stewart) and for Hertford and Stevenage (Mr. Wells). It is accepted that there is a need to improve geriatric and psychogeriatric services in Hertfordshire, but the speed at which this can be done depends on assessment of priorities within the resources available. My hon. and learned Friend will be discussing this and related issues during the North-West Thames regional review meeting next month.
