asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will respond to the "open letter" addressed to them by the editor of the Manchester Evening News on the future of Wythenshawe Hospital's Transplant Centre; and whether they can now disclose the approximate date by which the centre's future will be decided.

We will reply to the letter. The Department of Health have given an undertaking to issue a discussion document on the future of the National Cardiothoracic Transplant Service as soon as we have all the relevant facts. The decision on the site of the fourth national cardiothoracic transplant centre will be announced once any comments have been considered.
