HC Deb 03 December 1985 vol 88 c211W
Mr. Hancock

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if the Portsmouth and South East Hampshire health authority has applied for additional funds for remedial works for the Queen Alexandra hospital; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Whitney

The Department has received no such application. I understand that temporary winter repairs have been carried out to the roof of the Queen Alexandra hospital, Portsmouth. The Wessex regional health authority is now considering the situation, and will explore the available options for permanent remedial work next year. The funding of the work is a matter for consideration by the regional health authority.
