Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill — 7 May 2003 at 18:45

I beg to move,

That this House declines to give a Second Reading to a Bill which, by establishing Foundation Trusts and introducing other layers of bureaucracy, would increase disparities between hospitals and detract from the Government's commitment to a primary care led NHS, free from excessive bureaucracy, and believes that alternative ways of encouraging accountability in the NHS should be considered and a consensus established before legislation is introduced.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 117, Noes 297.
