§ 50. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott
asked the Minister of Health what factors have made him reject the advice of the Leeds Regional Hospital Board that a general hospital for the Wharfe and Aire Valleys, north of Leeds, should be built at Men-stone in Wharfedale.
§ Mr. Powell
I have not done so. The board has suggested that a new hospital6W in Wharfedale may be needed in 10 or 15 years' time. A decision on this cannot yet be taken.
