HC Deb 08 March 1928 vol 214 c1193

asked the Minister of Pensions if he has yet come to any decision with the Glasgow Corporation as to the future of Bellahouston Hospital; if it is proposed to have it closed; and if he can state what arrangements have been made for other hospital accommodation in the Glasgow area, or if it is intended to have patients removed to the east of Scotland?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

I am not yet in a position to add anything to the statement which I made last Thursday in reply to three questions by the hon. Member for East Edinburgh.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a public statement has appeared in the Press to the effect that the right hon. Gentleman has come to an arrangement with the Glasgow Corporation?


I think the hon. Member will understand that I must await the official reply. I have asked for an extension, and I hope to get a satisfactory reply, but I cannot publish the reply till I get it.
