Report (1st Day)
Health and Social Care Bill
Earl Howe (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Quality), Health; Conservative)
There is no hierarchy but the Secretary of State will be bound to report to Parliament and, in doing so, he must show that he has exercised his functions in a way that fulfil his statutory duties under the Bill. Parliament will no doubt hold him to account for having done so. He must demonstrate across the piece that he has had regard to those duties.
