§ Mrs. White
My right hon. Friend has not yet received the proposals of the Welsh Hospital Board and the Board of Governors of the United Cardiff Hospitals for the reorganisation of hospital services in the Greater Cardiff area, and it would be premature for him to express a judgement.
§ Mr. Gower
When the right hon. Gentleman does, will he take account of the huge public opposition to these closure proposals and of the profound concern of the Barry Council and other local authorities in the area? Will he not overlook, too, the view expressed by B.P. Chemicals and Midland Silicones and other industrialists that the maintenance of the Barry Accident Hospital and the Amy-Evans Outpatients' Hospital is almost indispensable for their operations?
