§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) if he will give for each hospital over 250 beds(a) the land and building capital evaluation and (a) equipment capital evaluation;
(2) on what date he proposes that hospitals will start paying capital interest charges; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
I have asked each health board to compile a register of all capital assets held, their location and their value, but this information is not yet available. A Scottish working paper on capital charging, including a proposed timetable, will be published shortly.
