HC Deb 02 November 1966 vol 735 cc100-1W
80. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why the old people now in the sanatorium at New Cumnock are to be transferred to another hospital.

Mr. Ross

A survey undertaken recently by the local fire prevention officer indicated that a fire risk exists at Glenafton Hospital. It was therefore decided to transfer the patients to the Biggart Memorial Home. However, no final decision has yet been taken about the future of Glenafton Hospital.
