Caroline Flint MP (Lab) - #nhscommission debate quotes 2 of 2:
"The central point of the motion is funding... We have never had that proposition because it is not within the mix of a general election. In the bustle and the back and forth, a debate on that has not been allowed to happen. We, as politicians, are to blame."
"A commission would not paralyse us and stop us continuing the good work in the NHS and the good parts of the forward view. That is the big challenge before us and it is why a commission would enable us to take some of the politics out of the debate and allow us to move forward together."
