All the eight schemes which have so far been formally submitted for my approval include provision for domiciliary treatment.

Will the Minister do something to give publicity to these schemes so that there can be more general information for the sake again of other authorities who are now considering the matter and how best it can be carried out?

I think there is a general understanding of these matters, but I will certainly give consideration to the hon. Member's suggestion.
