Will the Leader of the House show the same strength of feeling on the subject of the Health Service as he has just shown on the matter relating to his hon. Friends? Does he accept that there has been tremendous pressure for the debate on the Health Service that is to take place later today in Opposition time and that there will not be sufficient time to hear all those hon. Members who wish to refer to health crises in their constituencies? The David Barber case has highlighted the crisis in the west midlands. Young children in my constituency are waiting for admission to the children's unit at Birmingham. If, as I suspect will be the case, all those hon. Members who want to raise issues about the Health Service are unable to do so today, will the Leader of the House make Government time available because the Health Service crisis must be responded to by Parliament.
