David Cameron: Coalition is working well together

Posted on: 10th May 2011

From the London Evening Standard, May 10th 2011

“The Government escaped a damaging rebellion in a Labour-called vote against the health shake-up but saw its majority cut to 53, with several Liberal Democrat MPs deliberately staying away.

One, backbenche Andrew George, registered a deliberate abstention after suggesting there was so much wrong with the legislation that it should be ripped up entirely.

The plans are being reviewed after Health Secretary Andrew Lansley was forced to call a “pause” amid mounting criticism at Westminster and among many health professionals.”
