HC Deb 09 May 1966 vol 728 cc15-6
6. Mr. Ted Fletcher

asked the Minister of Health if he will give particulars of all hospital building projects in the north-east development districts costing over £100,000 for which contracts have been let but which have not been started, or where work was under way at 31st March, 1966, including the estimated cost and date of completion in each instance.

Mr. K. Robinson

I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Cleveland (Mr. Tinn) on 25th April, 1966.

Mr. Fletcher

Has my right hon. Friend any evidence of a falling off in the tempo of hospital building in the North-East due to material or labour shortages?

Mr. Robinson

No, Sir, I have no evidence of that.
