§ 2. Mr. Bence
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representation he has received respecting the building of a maternity hospital to serve the needs of Clydebank, Bearsden, Milngavie, Duntocher and Drumchapel; and what steps he is taking to provide such a hospital.
§ Mr. Maclay
Clydebank Town Council and Dunbartonshire Executive Council have represented that such a hospital should be built. The regional board's plans provide for the area to rely mainly on hospitals nearby, including new facilities at Yorkhill and Alexandria, but the programme of schemes which they hope to start by 1965, includes a general practitioner maternity unit at Clydebank.
