HC Deb 18 February 1963 vol 672 cc5-6W
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 hospital in Wharfedale may be needed in 10 or 15 years' time. A decision on this cannot yet be taken.
