To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list the amounts provided for the forthcoming year by each health region in England and Wales for bridging funds for local care of patients discharged or excluded from mental hospitals; how much in each case is provided for the long-term patients still to be discharged from hospitals and how much for those already discharged from hospitals; and what the time per patient is in each case.

I regret that this information is not available centrally. My hon. Friend may wish to contact the chairman of each regional health authority for the information he is seeking.
