asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what conclusions he has reached on the report of Omagh district council regarding the future status of Tyrone county hospital.

This report was made to the Western Health and Social Services Board; it comments on the recommendations of the board's working party on future hospital services in its area. The board has now reached the conclusion that the Tyrone county hospital should continue to provide acute hospital services, but has emphasised the need for a close working relationship between that hospital and the Erne hospital in Ennis killen. The board has referred its conclusions to me and I intend to consider them carefully and consult local interests before taking a decision.
