HC Deb 20 November 1970 vol 806 cc505-6W
Mr. Jeffrey Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the future of the maternity unit at Nantyglo Hospital.

Mr. Peter Thomas

The Welsh Hospital Board propose and I accept that the general practitioner maternity facilities at Blaina and District Hospital, Nantyglo, should be transferred to St. James's Hospital, Tredegar, at the end of the year. Consultations were held on this proposal last year and I am satisfied that it accords with best modern practice.
