HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 c134W
124. Mr. Lambie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will expedite the start of the proposed 50-bed extension at Biggart Hospital, Prestwick; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The decision as to the priority of this scheme in relation to other desirable schemes in the region is for the Western Regional Hospital Board. I understand that it is in the Board's programme to start in 1974–75 but planning is proceeding to allow an earlier start if resources permit.
