HC Deb 05 June 1990 vol 173 cc572-3W
22. Mr. David Evans

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is the revised estimate of the cost of the proposed Westminster and Chelsea hospital.

Mr. Dorrell

The estimated cost of the Westminster and Chelsea hospital is approximately £203 million. This figure is based on the estimated construction cost of around £178 million plus equipment and fees. The estimates take account of expected inflation over the period of the contract which is due for completion in mid-1992.
