HC Deb 07 February 1962 vol 653 c422
34. Mr. Mclnnes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if a definite decision has yet been reached with regard to the future use of the land at Cowglen Military Hospital.

Mr. Maclay

No, Sir. The Western Regional Hospital Board has not yet completed its plans for the reorganisation of general hospital services in Glasgow and in consequence a decision cannot be reached.

Mr. Mclnnes

Will the Secretary of State undertake to accelerate proceedings in the negotiations which are taking place? The right hon. Gentleman must, and I believe he does, recognise the tremendous housing problem in Glasgow.

Mr. Maclay

I have asked the regional hospital board to complete its review of sites and services as soon as possible.
