Welsh Health Minister hits back at MPs' criticism

The Welsh Health Minister has effectively told MPs on the Commons Health Committee to back off. Lesley Griffiths was responding to their criticism of the Welsh Government's policy of replacing PIP implants. She said,

Health is a devolved matter, and my response to the PIP issue has been based entirely on what is best for women in Wales needing help from the health service in Wales. I note with interest the contents of today's report but the UK government has no jurisdiction over health in Wales.
