§ The Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Security (Mr. Michael Alison)
Boards have been asked to give particular attention to any expected transport difficulties and to enlist the help of transport undertakings to overcome them.
§ Miss Quennell
If my hon. Friend aware that it takes seven hours for constituents from certain parts of my constituency to travel by public transport, for example, from Headley parish to Basingstoke, to the new general hospital, and does he consider this reasonable?
§ Mr. Alison
The problem is not a new one, but accessibility is now a prime factor in the location of new hospitals.
