§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many hospitals have been constructed in each year since 1979; and what was the cost of each such hospital. 
§ Mr. Milburn
Information is collected centrally only on major capital projects, and not in terms of numbers of hospitals. A table listing the numbers and total works cost by national health service region of capital schemes in excess of £25 million completed between April 1980 and March 1997 has been placed in the Library. Details of the cost of individual capital projects have also been placed in the Library.
