asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement outlining what plans he has for the replacement of Waterside general hospital in Derry.

The Western health and social services board has set in hand initial preparatory work on a scheme for the replacement of Waterside hospital. This proposal will enable the board to carry out the recommendation of the Northern Ireland Hospital Advisory Service and to replace entirely unsatisfactory accommodation for geriatric patients. An investment appraisal will be required, and when this is completed, a scheme, which is expected to cost about £2·5 million, will be admitted to the capital development programme.
