asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether she will take steps to see that in the near future three of the four operating theatres at Stepping Hill, Stockport, are either upgraded by modernisation or replaced by new modern theatres, in view of the closures there due to bacterial content, and the representations of consultants and their surgical teams about the consequential delays and inefficiencies.
