asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if the Health Service commissioners for Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham have told him the date on which they intend to close the Belgrave children's hospital; and if he will make a statement.

As a result of a very generous offer of financial help by the Variety Club of Great Britain, the Commissioners for the Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham area health authority and the South-East Thames regional health authority have agreed to the provision of two new children's wards at King's College hospital. It is envisaged that the in-patient services provided at the Belgrave children's hospital will be transferred to King's College hospital on completion of the scheme in 1982. No decision has been taken on the future of the outpatient facilities or the assessment centre at the Belgrave hospital.
