George calls for urgent summit on health reforms

Andrew George MP – a Liberal Democrat member of the Health Select Committee – will today take part in an Opposition Day Debate in the Commons on the controversial Health and Social Care Bill. Mr George will use the debate to continue his consistent opposition to the Bill. Along with Lib Dem colleagues he has tabled an amendment calling on Government to hold an urgent summit to plan Health reforms based on the Coalition Agreement.

The full text of Mr George’s amendment is below:

‘That this House notes the e-petition signed by 170,000 people calling on the Government to drop the Health and Social Care Bill; declines to support the Bill in its current form; and calls for an urgent summit of the Royal Colleges, professional bodies, patients’ organisations and the Government to plan health reforms based on the Coalition Agreement.’
