A future Labour Government would repeal the Health and Social Care bill at the first opportunity, the Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham told MPs.
He said it was a bill that nobody voted for, that no MP could look their constituent in the eye and defend and he attacked the Liberal Democrats for what he claimed was selling out by failing to stand up to the Prime Minister. Fiery talk, but a speech that will not halt the progress of the bill.
The shadow health secretary has an hour and a half to prevent the Health and Social Care bill going ahead today.
Figures from the Department of Health's annual survey of staff have been released and give a tantalising insight to life at the NHS.
