Health and Social Care Bill debate
13th March 2012
David Burrowes expresses support for provisions for tackling health inequalities in the Health and Social Care Bill.
Mr Burrowes: All our constituents will be listening intently to the debate and will hear that following the health inequalities that have grown under the previous Government, the Opposition will oppose and repeal legislation that imposes a duty to tackle those inequalities. What will they think of that?
Chris Skidmore: We have already heard one Labour Member say that she welcomes the new measures on health inequalities, so it is a shame that the legislation could be repealed in its entirety.
