HC Deb 23 November 1979 vol 974 c372W
Mr. Craigen

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he now expects Possilpark health centre to be completed, and the range of facilities to be provided at the centre to be available.

Mr. Fairgrieve

I am informed by the Greater Glasgow health board that the health centre at Possilpark is now scheduled for completion in February-March 1980 and should be operational within three months thereafter. I shall ask the board to keep the hon. Member informed of progress.

Mr. Craigen

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what discussions his officials have had with the Strathclyde regional council social work department on the relocation of the Possilpark blindcraft workshops into a purpose-built single storey building; what financial and other assistance his Department would provide to facilitate the move to new premises; and what time scale his officials envisage before the existing premises can be vacated.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

I shall reply to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
