HC Deb 16 August 1920 vol 133 cc599-600W

asked the Secretary of State for War the approximate cost of the 3rd London General Hospital, Wandsworth; and if this hospital is to be broken up or transferred to either the Ministry of Health or a Local Authority?


The 3rd London General Hospital consisted of the Royal Victoria Patriotic School buildings and grounds and a hutted portion on the common adjoining the school. Approximately £69,000 was spent on the hutted portion. During 1919, the school buildings and grounds were surrendered and the hospital concentrated in the hutted portion on the common. The hospital was closed on 31st July last, and is being reported to the Disposal Board as surplus to military requirements. With regard to the latter part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health to a similar question asked by the right hon. Member for Platting (Mr. Clynes) on Wednesday last.
