59. Miss Ward
asked the Minister of Health whether he has now received a deputation from the Northern Regional Hospital Board; and what response he was able to make to their representations.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
I regret that I was not able personally to receive the deputation, but they have been seen by officers on my behalf. I am glad to have been able to agree to the Board's proceeding this year with a limited number of specially urgent small schemes which it was feared might have to be postponed until next year or later.
