HC Deb 09 December 1981 vol 14 c403W
29. Mr. Carmichael

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made in the remedial work at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow; if he is satisfied with the rate of progress; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Allan Stewart

Good progress has been made and all wards in the high rise block will have been handed back by the end of this year. A good deal of the scaffolding has already been removed. Work remaining to be done on the low rise buildings and on the service and administration areas of the high rise block will be completed by the autumn of 1982. Considering the difficulties the contractor has had in working in a functioning building this seems to me to be a satisfactory performance.
