§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his planned capital expenditure on hospital building for the next five years in Greater Glasgow, Lothian and Lanarkshire health boards.
§ Mr. Stewart
It is not possible to provide capital expenditure figures on hospital building for the next five years for Greater Glasgow, Lothian and Lanarkshire health boards. Health boards and trusts have been given provisional capital allocation figures for 1994–95 and 1995–96 only. These reflect only the consequences in those years of the 1993–94 allocations and do not take into account new starts in 1994–95 or 1995–96.
The figures are as follows:
Provisional Capital Allocations Health Boards/Trust 1994–95 £ million 1995–96 £ million Greater Glasgow Health Board 20.048 18. Southern General Hospitals NHS Trust 2. 1. Victoria Infirmary NHS Trust 0. 0. Yorkhill NHS Trust 3.081 2. Lothian Health Board 18. 13. West Lothian NHS Trust 0. 1.175 Lanarkshire Health Board 9. 10. Monklands and Bellshill NHS Hospital Trust 2. 1.
