§ Mr. Cousins
To ask the Secretary of State for Health when she proposes to give a decision on the proposals for Newcastle hospitals submitted to her by Newcastle health authority; and whether she proposes to respond in detail to the points put to her in a letter dated 26 November from the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne, Central, (Mr. Cousins).
§ Mr. Sackville
I agreed to the proposals set out in "The future of health care in Newcastle" on 9 December. On the same day I wrote to the hon. Member informing him of the decision and responding to the points he made in his letter. Copies of the proposals and my letter will be placed in the Library.
