Hansard 25 March: Column 1425

The wide-ranging Health Bill which, among other things, promotes joint funding and joint working between local authorities and NHS bodies last night completed its Third Reading in the Lords. It now moves to the Commons.

It is a highly detailed, technical and extensive Bill, which has been substantially amended in the Lords. Conservative and Liberal Democrat health spokesmen, Earl Howe and Lord Clement-Jones, both paid tribute to health minister Baroness Hayman for her genuine attempts to co-operate to reach consensus where possible and to improve the Bill in order to make it workable in practice.
