It is very good that we have been able to give funds to over 100 A&Es across the country so that they can expand, both to be able to cope with infection control procedures and to ensure that there is more space. I pay tribute to the Minister for Health, my hon. Friend Edward Argar, who has driven through this programme along with the NHS. I am confident that this can be built in time for winter to ensure that we are ready by December.
