Mr. Alan Williams
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many representations he has received for an extension of X-ray facilities at the Singleton casualty unit; and how many in opposition.
§ Mr. Grist
Since 1 June 1988, 102 individual representations and petitions have been received by the Department seeking expanded use of the minor casualty unit services at Singleton hospital, Swansea, the majority of which have explicitly sought improved access to X-ray facilities.
The district health authority has indicated to the Department that it would neither support nor encourage the development of radiology services for the minor casualty unit.
