Margaret Greenwood: The Secretary of State will be aware that Sir Robert Francis specifically recommended that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence provide guidance on safe staffing levels because it is independent and can establish guidance based on the needs of patients.

Margaret Greenwood: I would like to declare myself as a proud trade unionist all my working life. I am grateful for the support that I have received from the trade union movement.
