§ Mr. John Page
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what were the total and individual costs of transport and flooring materials for the reconstruction of the kitchens at Gulson Hospital, 260W Gulson Road, Coventry; and why the operation took eight months to complete.
§ Dr. Owen
£10,702, including £8,000 for transporting meals to Gulson Hospital while the kitchens were out of use. The cost of flooring materials cannot be readily identified, but I will write to the lion. Member with the information. The new flooring was unsatisfactory when first laid, and there was substantial delay while liability was discussed with the contractor and relaying was undertaken.
