Darren Millar AM: 'Serious questions persist'

Shadow Minister for Health, Darren Millar AM has responded to the no confidence vote defeat, saying that Health Minister Lesley Griffiths' argument "remains utterly unconvincing".

Responses to many of the questions posed were completely contrary to the evidence provided. Serious questions persist on a number of significant issues and explanations on important matters relating to the report’s independence remain as clear as mud. It is disappointing that the joint motion has fallen in this way, despite continued cross-party concerns on the case for change report’s independence. Welsh Conservatives will maintain our fierce opposition to the downgrading of district general hospitals that will force patients to travel further for emergency treatment.
