Conservative MP Robert Halfon has welcomed the introduction of free or cheap hospital parking for relatives of chronically ill patients - but has called for charges to be scrapped altogether.
In the long term I think we need to scrap hospital car parking charges completely because they are a stealth tax.
It was never envisaged that people with cars should be subsidising the NHS.
The stories that we've had of people not being able to use the machines so they haven't been able to see their dying relatives is quite horrific and we have to make a change.
