§ Mr. W. Griffiths
asked the Minister of Health upon what date he approved the plans for the new maternity block to be built at the Withington Hospital, Manchester; whether he is aware that the pre-natal clinic will be about a quarter of a mile away from the new maternity block; what is the estimated cost; and when he expects work to commence.
§ Miss Pitt
Sketch plans were approved on 2nd June, 1959, for a maternity block estimated to cost £173,000. I cannot yet say when work will commence. The pre-natal clinic has been sited where it will be most convenient for patients.
