To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) if he will list with the dates any significant capital projects his Department intends to commence in the next five years in the borough of Oadby and Wigston;(2) if he will list with the dates those sigificant capital projects his Department intends to commence in the next five years in the district of Harborough.

No major National Health Service capital schemes are planned for these boroughs although, of course, recent major developments and future agreed developments in Leicestershire will benefit their residents. These developments include Glenfield general hospital phase I (official opened by Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Kent in March 1986) and phase II (building work started in May 1987) and phase 4B at Leicester royal infirmary (building work started in October 1987) totalling in excess of £60 million between them. The Department does not hold details of schemes costing under £1 million and my hon. Friend may wish to contact the chairman of the Leicestershire district health authority for this information.
