HC Deb 11 November 1970 vol 806 cc159-60W
39. Mr. Doig

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will now give an estimate of the total cost of Ninewells Hospital in Dundee; and his latest estimate of when it will be completed.

Mr. Edward Taylor

The March, 1970, estimate of the cost of Ninewells Hospital, including fees and equipment, was £17 million. The possible effect upon this estimate of current arbitration between the Eastern Regional Hospital Board and the contractors cannot be assessed. On completion date, I have nothing to add to my reply given to the hon. Gentleman on 15th July last.—[Vol. 803, c.218.]
