HC Deb 27 June 1974 vol 875 cc545-6W
Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she will give a date for the start of the final consultative period over the proposed permanent closure of the minor casualty department at Bexhill hospital.

Dr. Owen

The South-East Thames Regional Health Authority tells me that informal discussions with local interests have been proceeding already and it is hoped that formal consultations can be started shortly.
