To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will ensure that any moneys accruing to Yorkshire regional health authority from the proposed sale of Snapethorpe hospital, Wakefield, are made available to Wakefield district health authority.

To encourage district health authorities to identify surplus property it is our policy that district health authorities should benefit from the proceeds of sales. Regional health authorities are instructed, therefore, to pass a significant proportion of sale proceeds to the district health authority which initiates the sale. Regarding the proposed sale of Snapethorpe I suggest the hon. Member contacts the regional health authority chairman, Sir Bryan Askew.
