asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish in the Official Report a list of hospital closures, either temporary or permanent, the number of beds closed temporarily or permanently and the sums of money anticipated to be saved by such closures, in the area covered by the City and Hackney area health authority.

Since 1974 the only hospital which has been permanently closed in the City and Hackney health district is the Metropolitan Hospital (118 beds). The City and East London area health authority (teaching) estimated that this would save about £200,000 at 1977–78 prices. Other information requested is not readily available centrally and the hon. Member may like to approach the area health authority direct.
