New Clause 1 — Infection control standards — 19 Jul 2004 at 17:45

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

The Bill has not been the subject of detail or aggressive controversy. We are all working towards one objective, which is to reach a point at which patients in the NHS, and the public generally, are protected to the maximum possible extent. A key part of that objective is securing good-quality infection control, not least in the NHS.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 163, Noes 297.
