HC Deb 01 July 1957 vol 572 c696
62. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that it is over nine years since the project was initiated for building a new dental department of University College Hospital; and when it is intended that the plans approved several months ago will be proceeded with.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Plans were submitted in December last. They have not been approved pending consideration of the possibility of increasing the number of students. The date of building will depend on the amount of replanning which might be necessary to meet university requirements.

Dame Irene Ward

Does my hon. Friend not agree that there has been a very long delay in this matter, and can I assume that his Department will urge on a decision as quickly as possible?

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Yes, certainly.
