To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the responses received by Grampian health board and his Department relating to the proposal to put out to open tender the provision of hospital services at Stonehaven. 
Grampian health board has allowed until 5 pm on 21 December for the registration with it of expressions of interest in providing a new hospital and services for the Kincardineshire area. I will write to the hon. Member after that date. No such responses have been made to the Scottish Office Department of Health.
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will place in the Library copies of the basic information pack in relation to the contract to build new hospital facilities in Stonehaven. 
I am arranging to have a copy of the information pack prepared by Grampian health board placed in the Library.
