asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations have been made to him regarding the need to upgrade National Health Service premises to provide confidentiality during consultations; and if he will provide loans or grants to general practitioners for this purpose.

I have not received any representations on this subject, but if the hon. Member has a particular case in mind I have no doubt the appropriate health board will be happy to look into it. Grants are available for certain improvements to surgery premises and the General Practice Finance Corporation has power to make loans to provide new or improved premises.
