asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps he is taking to ensure that the neuro-surgical unit, planned for the Whittington Hospital, Archway, London N.19, will be established there.

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what consultations have taken place between his Department and the area health authority regarding the establishing of the neuro-surgical unit at the Whittington Hospital, Archway, London N.19; and if he will give an estimate of the cost of providing such a unit.
I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to his other Question today.
