§ Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, as a contribution to the reduction of unemployment, he will sanction immediately the commencement of the building of a new general hospital in West Fife.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
I shall consider this scheme in connection with an extension of the hospital building programme which I expect to announce early106W in 1972. But even if it were included in the programme, a considerable period would be required for planning before building could commence.
