HC Deb 24 February 1981 vol 999 c340W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has yet confirmed the proposed closure of Ashdown ward at Bexley hospital as a drug addiction treatment centre; what plans he has to deal with the patients at present being treated; and if he will make a statement.

Sir George Young

I understand that the Greenwich and Bexley area health authority has issued a consultation document proposing the closure of this ward, but no such proposal has as yet been referred to my right hon. Friend.
