To ask the Secretary of State for Health what representations he has received about the closure of St. Ann's adolescent psychiatric unit in Nottingham; and if he will make a statement.

We have received two representations about St. Ann's, including one from the hon. Member. I understand that Nottingham health authority plans to strengthen its adolescent psychiatric service by appointing a professor with a supporting senior lecturer and fifth mental health team. In the meantime, the health authority hopes to cover the consultant vacancy with a locum.
