Health and Social Care Bill
Derek Twigg (Halton, Labour)
If I have misunderstood the hon. Gentleman, I apologise, but I understand that the Liberal Democrats were opposed to the proposals for competition in the Bill. [ Interruption. ] Will he let me finish? As we are opposed to the proposals in terms of competition, pricing and Monitor, why would we support the proposal for designation, which all fits into that mantra for the Bill, which I understand that his party is opposed to?
