§ Mr. Carmichael
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the work now progressing at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill, Glasgow, made necessary by building and constuction deficiencies on the original contract.
§ Mr. Harry Ewing
A tender was accepted in February for the internal remedial work at this hospital and work has started on two wards. When this has been completed, patients will be moved into these wards and the contractors will start on the two wards thus vacated. This method of working will ensure that the hospital continues as a functioning unit.
