HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 c416
31. Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the present old accommodation at the Halton Royal Air Force Hospital will be brought up to modern standards.

Mr. Channon

Work on modernising this hospital, at a cost of £1.1 million started last month and is due to be completed in the summer of 1973.

Mr. Knox

I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. What arrangements are being made in respect of the R.A.F. hospital at Uxbridge?

Mr. Channon

The work at Halton Hospital is being phased to enable Uxbridge patients to be accommodated there by the end of 1971, when R.A.F. Uxbridge will close.
