To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) if he will make available to local authorities sufficient funding to allow them to provide domiciliary night care facilities as an integral part of their community care programmes; and if he will make a statement;(2) if he will make available to Strathclyde regional council the extra funding needed to allow the council to provide community care facilities for the handicapped.

[holding answer 28 June 1990]: It is for local authorities to decide on the allocation of funds to particular services for which they may be responsible. I am aware that Strathclyde regional council already provides an extensive range of services for handicapped people and other persons requiring care in the community and that these include domiciliary services extending to some provision for night care.
