ANOTHER £39,000



To provide for the completion of the nurses' home extension, Green Lane Hospital, the Auckland Hospital Board last evening decided to apply to the Minister of Health for consent to the extra expenditure of £39,000. It was also decided to inform the contractors- that the board was totally dissatisfied with the progress being made towards the completion of the job and to ask them to inform the board of the reason for the delay and at the same time give a definite date for the completion of the building. The architect was instructed to submit a report advising the accepted reasons for the rises in building costs that had occurred since his original estimate of March 12, 1943, of £160,000. "I am satisfied it will take another 18 months or two years before it is finished," said Mr. G. T. Parvin. "If something is not moving in the next few days," said the chairman, Mr. Allan J. Moody, "something more drastic will be done."

Mr. J. Guiniven said nothing could be done until the report was made by the architect.
