§ Mr. Critchley
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what are his plans regarding the Louise Margaret and the Cambridge hospitals in Aldershot.
§ Mr. Hanley
As part of "Front Line First", we propose to reorganise the service hospital base in the United Kingdom around one hospital at Haslar in Gosport. This would involve the closure of the Cambridge military hospital, including the Louise Margaret maternity wing, in Aldershot. Our proposals for the defence medical services are outlined in a consultative document, a copy of which is in the Library of the House.
