§ 30. Dr. Dickson Mabon
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he intends to revise the Hospital Plan for Scotland, Command Paper No. 1602, in view of recent population reports and professional representations to him.
§ Mr. Woodburn
Is the Secretary of State aware that there are serious doubts in medical and other opinion about the wisdom of reconstructing the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh as proposed in the Hospital Plan and that a great many well-advised people consider that it would be much better to build a completely new hospital and to use the present Royal Infirmary for geriatric beds and thus satisfy both needs at much less expense?
