§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a progress report on plans to erect a hospital in the burgh of Rutherglen.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
The first development in Rutherglen is to be a 100-bed maternity unit for which tenders will be invited shortly by the Western Regional Hospital Board. The general hospital which is to be built on the same site is in Band VI of the current major hospital building programme and preliminary planning is being undertaken by the Regional Board.
