asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the expected cost at 1975 prices of the proposed Newham District General Hospital, broken down into main headings, including that of land.
As details of the design have not been settled the information concerning the building is not available. The cost of the land is not likely to exceed £450,000.
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the total expenditure incurred by the North East Thames Regional Health Authority or its predecessors or subsidiary authorities in plans, advice, or purchase of land for the proposed Newham District Hospital.
The information on the first two items is, I regret, not available, but I am taking steps to collect the information and I will write to my hon. Friend. With regard to the purchase of the land I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to his other Question today.
