asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will now make a statement on progress since his statement in the House on 28 February in resolving the dispute between the Welsh Health Common Services Authority and IDC Ltd. concerning defective hospital buildings in Bangor.

WHTSO, now named the Welsh Health Common Services Authority, claimed £130,000 from IDC Ltd., being the cost of remedying building defects in the staff residences at Ysbyty Gwynedd. The present position is that WHCSA has exercised its right to set off the full amount of this claim against money payable to IDC Ltd. under the contract. As far as WHCSA is concerned, it has therefore recovered the full cost of the remedial measures, and there the matter rests.Legal action against the Hospital Design Consortium (HDC Ltd.) and Haden Young Ltd. for defective work on the main hospital building and the staff residences is being vigorously pursued by WHCSA. I shall report the outcome fully to the House.
