HC Deb 18 February 1988 vol 127 c698W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to announce his decision on proposals for closure of Hartley hospital, Colne.

Mrs. Currie

The regional health authority has decided that the transfer of out-patient services located at Hartley hospital and the future use of he building will be the subject of a public consultation exercise. A final decision on the proposals will be made by Ministers only if the community health council objects to them.
