The Government played no part in the decision to suspend children's heart surgery at Leeds General Infirmary, peers were told today.
Health minister Earl Howe said the decision was taken by the local health trust in agreement with the Care Quality Commission and NHS medical director Sir Bruce Keogh.
But Liberal Democrat Lord Shutt of Greetland warned there had been "murky internal health politicking" going on over the issue of children's heart surgery in Yorkshire.
Lord Howe said the premise of Lord Shutt's question was "incorrect", adding:
Police investigating the disappearance of a grandmother, alleged to have been murdered by her partner, are searching moorland above Ripponden. Mrs Jackson, who was 55, went missing seven weeks ago from her home in County Durham.
West Yorkshire police are helping Durham police in the search for Mrs Jackson and are concentrating their efforts around the moors and resevoir at Blackstone Edge.
