HC Deb 19 May 1988 vol 133 c550W
Mr. Biffen

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services how many representations he has received to date concerning the proposed hospital closure programme of the Shropshire health authority; and how many favour the proposals of the authority.

Mrs. Currie

Since my reply to my right hon. Friend on 11 March, at column395, we have received over 700 further letters concerning health services in Shropshire. None has expressed support for hospital closures in the district. All will be taken into account if proposals come to Ministers for decision.
