To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on the present position regarding the future of Cairndhu hospital, Lame; and whether this property will be transferred to Lame borough council.

The Sir Thomas and Lady Edith Dixon hospital (Cairndhu) was closed on 1 June 1986 and action to dispose of the property was begun shortly thereafter. However, the conditions under which the hospital was orginally donated may affect its disposal and the matter has been referred to the Chancery court.I am aware of Lame borough council's interest in acquiring the property and will bear its interest in mind.
