23. Miss Begg

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the new children's hospital in Aberdeen. [33177]

Mr. Galbraith

My right hon. Friend announced on 6 January that as a result of co-operation between the Health Board and Trusts in Grampian a new Children's Hospital would be built and operational in Aberdeen by 2003. This will be part of a £22 million development of hospital services in Grampian made possible by the disposal of redundant estate.
