I confirm that my hon. Friend is right. There has never been any evidence to show what has been alleged. There is unfair reporting of the matter. One of the newspapers that supports the Opposition, the Daily Mirror, reports another of Mr. Yates's ideas, which is to give incentives to doctors who do well in reducing waiting lists. However, the Daily Mirror reports that in most unfair terms as being a dreadful thing to do. I am not sure whether the Labour party is in favour of Mr. Yates or against him.
