I have received around 20 emails from people wishing me to know they disagree strongly with the Health Bill. Apparently there was a campaign as I stated on the BBC that I had received very few emails on this topic from constituents. None of the latest have written from a Wokingham constituency address, so I am assuming they are all non constituents. If any constituent does wish me to consider objections to the Bill or wants me to take matters up with Mr Lansley, I remain as always very happy to do so and will reply personally to you as I always do. I would be grateful for you to include your address so I can see you are a constituent.
The remaining non constituency emails mainly confirm that there are opponents of the Bill, as we know from polls, media interviews and other communications. I have never denied that there are opponents to the legislation. I have always encouraged discussion and negotiations between Ministers and NHS executives and medical staff to seek to get this right and to work harmoniously together.
