Local MP piles pressure on Government over Hornsey Central Hospital

Lynne Featherstone, Lib Dem MP for Hornsey & Wood Green, has kept the pressure up on the Government to deliver on the Hornsey Central Hospital by seizing the opportunity to quiz a key Government Minister on the pending grant award.

Ms Featherstone questioned Andy Burnham MP, Minister of State at the Department of Health, on the accounting problems delaying the Strategic Authority’s awarding of the grant needed for the development of health services on the site.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“I am not going to let anyone rest on their laurels on the awarding of this grant for the development.Work might have started on the development, but there are a lot of ‘T’s to be crossed and quite a few ‘I’s to be dotted before we crack open the champagne.

“It is essential the funds are released centrally. Local people have received a long outstanding promise and I am going to make sure it is delivered.”
