HC Deb 29 March 1955 vol 539 c186
26. Captain Orr

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will make a statement about the future of Waring-field Military Hospital, County Down.

Mr. Head

We hope to lease the site of Waringfield Military Hospital until a new military hospital at Lisburn is completed. Waringfield Military Hospital will then be closed.

Captain Orr

Would my right hon. Friend agree that it is high time that a permanent military hospital was built, and this collection of obsolete shacks and the ground upon which it stands handed back to the original owner?

Mr. Head

Yes, Sir.
