§ 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.
