HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 c77W
Mr. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will refuse permission for the closure of the ambulance station in the Newcastle-under-Lyme constituency.

Mr. John Patten

I understand that agreement with the community health council on the closure has not been reached, and that the proposal is consequently likely to be referred to us under the established consultation procedures. We shall consider the arguments carefully before making a final decision.
