HC Deb 26 November 1973 vol 865 c75W
Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the plans for the future of Doddington Hospital.

Mr. Alison

In September 1973 the regional hospital board considered the responses which had been received to its published plans for the future of the County Hospital, Doddington. The proposals were revised in the light of these comments and were submitted to my Department, It has been agreed that the next step should be for the board to arrange a meeting at which all interested public authorities would be given the opportunity to discuss the amended plans. I will keep the hon. Member informed of developments.
