To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) whether he will list, by health authority, the number of beds available in continuing care for elderly people in the national health service in Wales;(2) what steps he is taking to ensure continuing care provision in the national health service for elderly people in Wales;(3) whether he will list, by health authority, the number of beds in continuing care for elderly people which have been contracted out in Wales.

The information requested is not held centrally. It is for local health authority management to decide the nature of the continuous care service it provides, in the light of local needs and circumstances and the overall level of provision.
