§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make an up-to-date statement on the future of the Edinburgh dental hospital and school.
§ Mr. John MacKay
In my answer of 26 July at column692 to the hon. Member for Edinburgh, East (Mr. Strang) I referred to the outcome of the discussions on 23 July between Edinburgh university, Lothian health board, the University Grants Committee and the Scottish Home and Health Department. I understand that the health board will shortly submit proposals to replace the dental hospital for consideration by the University Grants Committee and the Secretary of State.
