The Humble Petition of Mr Alan Scard and others,

Sheweth,

That Gosport Borough Council, Fareham Borough Council and the Haslar Task Force have proposals for the future use of the Haslar site and have urged that ways be found to utilise the site for the provision of healthcare services and treatment in Gosport, Fareham and the surrounding areas.

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House shall urge the Ministry of Defence, the Department of Health and all other relevant bodies to promote this particular proposal.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.—[Presented by Peter Viggers, Official Report, 12 May 2008; Vol. 475, c. 1169 .] [P000189]

Observations from the Secretary of State for Health:

This is a matter for the local National Health Service to now take forward the plans to implement the planned changes and I would urge the relevant NHS organisations and the local community to work together in order to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.
