§ Mr. Goodlad
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many hospital building schemes in(a) the North West regional health authority and (b) the Mersey regional health authority have (i) been completed since 1979 and (ii) are under construction or at the planning and design stage; and what are the comparable figures for the other health regions.
§ Mr. Freeman
The information held centrally on schemes each costing over El million is as follows:
matters related to contamination of drinking water by (i) micro-organisms, (ii) chemicals and (iii) radiation; and where these staff are located within the Trent regional health authority.
§ Mr. Mellor
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment has primary responsibility for the 767W public water supply. The Department of Health does not employ any staff to deal specifically with contamination of drinking water.
