HC Deb 10 May 1999 vol 331 cc3-4W
Dr. Gibson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to ensure(a) public transport access and (b) access off the southern bypass to the new hospital in Norwich from the city centre. [82688]

Ms Glenda Jackson

Public transport access to the new Norfolk and Norwich Hospital at Colney is a matter for Norfolk County Council as the local transport authority, the Hospital trust, who have entered into an agreement with the County Council to provide a high quality bus service for the new site, and the commercial operators.

Fighting in the country is resulting in continued flows of refugees into neighbouring countries. The conflict and movement of those displaced continues to prevent humanitarian agencies from accessing many of those in need.

The UK is ready to respond to appeals from UN agencies and NGOs. We have so far this year provided over £450,000 bilaterally through humanitarian agencies to support refugee and displaced populations, and other vulnerable groups.
