asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many flat-roofed health centres have been built in Wales in the last 10 years or the most recently available dates; what is the current cost of maintenance of roofs; and what consideration he has given to the problems arising from such construction in areas of high rainfall.

75 health centres have been built in Wales in the 10 years to December 1979. Information about the proportion that are flat roofed, and the cost of maintenance is not available centrally. Provided that flat roofs are built to an adequate specification no special problems need arise in areas of high rainfall, but current practice in Wales is moving towards pitched roof design.
