HC Deb 03 May 1971 vol 816 c994
14. Mr. Michael Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what proposals he has for providing parking facilities and access roads at the New Heath Hospital.

Mr. Gibson-Watt

The hospital plans provide parking for over 900 cars. Consideration is currently being given to proposals by Cardiff Corporation for further car parking and a third access road to the site.

Mr. Roberts

Would the Minister of State give further consideration to provide parking facilities, particularly for students, for whom no provision has so far been made? Would he also consider the provision of an access road to Eastern Avenue, which would greatly facilitate admissions in times of emergency and relieve traffic congestion throughout the neighbourhood?

Mr. Gibson-Watt

I am aware of the particular problem of students and the access road to which my hon. Friend referred. I was glad that he and other residents were able to meet the secretary of the local hospital management committee on 1st May to discuss the matter.
