To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list in the Official Report the hospitals for the mentally ill and handicapped which will become empty over the next five years, the number of patients in each at the latest available date, the district health authority in which each is situated; and whether it is in or near an urban area.

Proposals for any substantial variation in the service provided in a district, such as the closure of a hospital, are a matter in the first instance for the health authority. No proposals have been approved by my right hon. Friend which would lead to the closure in the next five years of a mental illness or mental handicap hospital in Wales.
