HC Deb 01 March 1990 vol 168 cc313-4W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when he expects to take a decision on the provision of a new hospital for the Coleraine, Ballymoney and Moyle district; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Needham

A decision will be taken when the further appraisal initiated by the Northern board has been completed.

As part of health education, which recent legislation includes as a compulsory element of the common curriculum for all schools in Northern Ireland, children will be taught about the serious risks inherent in the misuse of drugs and other harmful substances. This will build on what is already good practice in many schools.
