asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he next expects to meet representatives of the Greater Glasgow health board to discuss the problems of (a) Woodilee hospital and (b) other psychiatric hospitals; and if he will make a statement.

Scottish Home and Health Department officials have already met once with representatives of the Greater Glasgow health board to discuss the problems of the main block of Woodilee hospital and the Department is represented on the special technical working group which has been set up by the hoard to assess the cost of bringing the main block back into use. Once that working group has reported, the Department expects to have further discussions with the board about the available options.The Greater Glasgow health board is also considering a review of its strategy for psychiatric services generally and the Department will also be discussing this with the hoard in due course.
