HC Deb 01 February 1968 vol 757 cc394-5W
65 and 66. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Health (1) whether he will transfer the surplus property adjacent to Moor Park Hospital to the Tynemouth Local Authority, if it is required, before he offers it commercially;

(2) whether, in his offer to the Tyne-mouth Corporation of surplus property adjacent to Moor Park Hospital he will deal with the transaction as being a transfer from one social service to another.

Mr. K. Robinson

I offered the land on 31st March, 1967, and am ready to transfer it immediately if the local authority accepts the terms recommended by the district valuer. This is in accordance with the long-standing and approved practice when Crown assets are disposed of, whatever the purpose for which they are required.

Forward to
