HC Deb 06 July 1961 vol 643 cc150-1W
Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state the total sum allocated, in respect of the hospital building programme, to the South East Regional Hospital Board for each of the financial years 1961–62 to 1964–65, and the amount allocated by the regional board for each of those years in respect of rebuilding for the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and the Western General Hospital and extensions for the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, and the Randolph Wemyss Hospital.

Mr. Maclay

The allocations for 1961–62 and the provisional allocations for 1962–63 are as follows:

1961–62 1962–63
£ £
South-Eastern Region 668,000 1,497,000
Edinburgh Royal Infirmary—
Re-building Nil Nil
Additional accommodation required in connection with this re-building 90,000 100,000
Western General Hospital—Out-Patient Department 5,000 40,000
Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, Phase II 40,000 750,000
Randolph Wemyss Hospital, Buckhaven 25,000 100,000

Allocations have not been made for subsequent years, but it is expected that the two Fife projects will be substantially complete before any major expenditure is incurred on the Royal Infirmary or the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh.
