HC Deb 14 December 1965 vol 722 c241W
Mr. Strauss

asked the Minister of Health whether he has completed his discussion with the Board of Governors about the rebuilding of St. Thomas's Hospital, London; and when he now expects the next stage of building to commence.

Mr. K. Robinson

Following further discussions between the Ministry and the Board of Governors of St. Thomas's Hospital, covering among other matters a substantial reduction in the estimated cost of the scheme, the Board are examining a proposal which it is hoped will make it possible for Stage II of the reconstruction of the hospital to start in 1968.
