HC Deb 18 February 1957 vol 565 c10W
Mr. F. Anderson

asked the Minister of Health the position so far as the new hospital at Whitehaven is concerned; when the building of the hospital is likely to commence; and what the estimated cost of the hospital will be.

Mr. Vosper

On Friday last, 15th February, I authorised the Regional Hospital Board to proceed with the site works, and work should begin shortly. The total estimated cost of the new hospital, including equipment, is about £2½ million, and plans for the first stage are nearing completion.
