Before the Secretary of State finally moves away from the clash of press releases, will he comment on the quote in the Health Service Journal today from a national health service source? Under the headline "NHS to take responsibility for social care", the report outlines the Government's plans to take more responsibility and states:

"Social care is currently provided by local authorities, the majority of which are now Conservative controlled. A move towards greater control of social care by the NHS has been described to HSJ by an NHS source as one way to 'rip the guts out of' Tory-controlled councils."

Will he take the opportunity to condemn that quote and find the NHS source it came from?
