HC Deb 12 March 1982 vol 19 cc509-10W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, further to the Minister of Health's letter of 8 October 1981 to the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras, South, he will make a statement on the future of the cardiac block at the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Subject to the establishment by a new design team of a firm budget cost for the necessary works we have accepted in principle the proposal of the board of governors of the Hospital for Sick Children to undertake remedial works to the new cardiac block at Great Ormond Street as recommended by the firm of structural engineers appointed by the board to inspect and report on the structure of the building.
