Today, Black Country MP John Spellar called on the Government to secure the completion of Midland Metropolitan Hospital and to ensure the project would not be affected by the liquidation of Carillion.
Speaking in Parliament, Mr Spellar said:
“The new Midland Metropolitan Hospital now towers over the terraced housing in the Smethwick part of my constituency. Despite a delay due to a design failure, work is now proceeding apace and is 2/3 completed.
So, what is the Government going to be doing about ensuring the flow of funding and work, so that the contract can be completed and we can look forward to the opening of this new – much needed – hospital?”
