asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many operating theatres there are at Redhill General Hospital; and whether she is satisfied with the conditions under which surgical operations are conducted in them.
Three at present. The area health authority has recently decided to provide a further theatre from the special capital allocation which the Government have earmarked to reduce the size of waiting lists; a start will be made later in the year. I am calling for further information about working conditions and I will write to the hon. Member.
