Stuart Bell MP, Middlesbrough voted with the majority (No).
I beg to move,
That the salary of the Secretary of State for Health should be reduced by £1,000.
I beg to move, To leave out from "House" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof:
"believes that there is no need to reduce the salary of the Secretary of State for Health at a time when patient satisfaction is increasing, with nine out of ten in-patients saying their care has been good, very good or excellent, waiting times are at their lowest since records began, an extra 200,000 lives have been saved from heart disease and cancer since 1996 and investment in the NHS is being trebled by 2008."
