HC Deb 01 April 1993 vol 222 c410W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will now take steps to ensure that radiotherapy treatment for cancer patients can be made available at Ysbyty Gwynedd; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

My right hon. Friend is currently considering an investment appraisal report on how best to establish a dedicated cancer treatment centre with radiotherapy facilities in north Wales. A separate economic appraisal of a recent proposal by the Clatterbridge centre for oncology for a networked radiotherapy treatment service is also being considered. My right hon. Friend hopes to be in a position to make an announcement soon.
