HC Deb 19 June 1973 vol 858 c70W
37. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will state approximately the acreage of land owned by hospitals which he estimates could be made available for housing and other social purposes nationally and in the North-West, respectively; and if he will take steps to release hospital land not required.

Sir K. Joseph

This information is not available but I have recently announced changed financial arrangements to give more direct incentive to hospital authorities to release land.
