HC Deb 22 July 1957 vol 574 cc29-30
20. Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Health when detailed plans for the proposed Cornwall Area Hospital were deposited at his Department; and what has happened to them since.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Revised sketch plans were submitted in January, 1957, but I understand that the regional hospital board propose further revisions. The plans have been studied in detail and it is hoped to arrange an early meeting with the hoard's officers.

Mr. Hayman

Does not the Parliamentary Secretary consider six months too long a period for consideration of this plan, and will he do all he can to speed up consideration so that this much needed hospital can be provided quickly?

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

I will do all I can, but I think the hon. Gentleman should know that, since the Ministry received the revised plans, we now learn that the board is proposing to change its plans in certain respects and is proposing new plans. I will do all I can to bring this matter to a conclusion.
