HC Deb 28 June 1984 vol 62 c524W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the future of Heswall children's hospital.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Liverpool health authority agreed the closure of Heswall children's hospital at their meeting on 26 June. I am calling in its agreement for final decision by Ministers. I will not take my decision until after I have met representatives of the action committee from Heswall.
