asked the Secretary of State for Wales what proposals he has to provide a new access to the University Hospital at the Heath, Cardiff.

I am ready to discuss this matter with the Cardiff City Council, which is the authority responsible for the present access roads to the University Hospital.

Is my hon. Friend aware that there is widespread dissatisfaction with the access to the hospital, which is considered inadequate for any emergency, and that the use of the roads in the Heath area causes inconvenience and danger to my constituents?

I accept that there is inconvenience to residents but I would not accept that access to the hospital is delayed at the present time. I should be more than prepared to meet the city council again if it so wished.
