§ Mr. Waterson
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many operations were cancelled at Eastbourne district general hospital in each of the last 36 months. 
§ Ms Blears
I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave on 14 February at column 676W which provided information on cancelled operations at Eastbourne Hospitals NHS Trust in the proceeding 60 months. Since then, figures for Quarter 3 of 2001–02 have been published. The number of last minute cancellations for non-clinical reasons at the Trust, in this quarter, was 90.
