To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether a new site has been identified for the Wolvercote Clinic; if the move of the Wolvercote Clinic to Chertsey remains a possibility; and whether there is a final date beyond which the Wolvercote Clinic's tenure of its site at Horton Hospital cannot be extended.

No decision has been made on the relocation of the Wolvercote Clinic as the relocation project team has yet to complete its work and report to Ministers. A number of potential sites have been identified, including the one in Chertsey, and these are in the final stage of evaluation.

The clinic's tenure of its present site at Horton Hospital, Epsom, is currently the subject of discussions between the Home Office, the Department of Health and the Lucy Faithfull Foundation.
