To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, pursuant to his answer of 8 July, Official Report, column 273, whether the consultant's report on the proposed new secure unit in south Wales has now been received; and if he will make a statement.

The joint Welsh Office and local authority working party has wholeheartedly adopted the feasibility report of its consultants, submitted to it at its meeting on 16 July. The report clearly recommended a site in west Glamorgan for the location of the proposed regional secure unit and it is now for that authority to consider the report before submitting a grant application to the Welsh Office. I very much hope that they come to an early decision to proceed so that work on the new unit can commence as quickly as possible.
