Health Questions

Went along but the odds against being called were always long as five Lib Dem questions featured in the top 11 on the Order Paper.
Dentists featured strongly but none of the points raised were new ones. Was highly irritated when one questioner cited the case of a child only being able to access and NHS dentist if the parent became a private patient of the dentist concerned. The Ministerial answer from Rosie Winterton implied that she didn't have many examples of this happening - I have certainly sent her plenty in the past which makes me wonder whether she reads her own letters.
