34. Mr. Costain

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects work to start on the new William Harvey Hospital at Ashford; and on what date he estimates it will be in operation.

Work is expected to start on site early in 1973. It is hoped that the first phase of the hospital will be built and in operation by late 1977.
