THE leader of Harlow Labour has expressed his concerns regarding the controversy over Christmas parties in Downing Street.
But councillor Chris Vince has told YH that he has confidence that Harlow residents will, as Prof. Chris Whitty said, put their anger aside and follow the new guidelines (Plan B).
We also asked him whether the thought that Harlow MP Robert Halfon should have been. more critical of Boris Johnson?
Interview is below.
Will a future Labour government actually reduce private company involvement in the NHS? Will it simplify NHS primary and secondary care organisational structures to reduce the cost of administration? Will it abolish the artificially created internal market? Will it stop the outsourcing of services? Will it stop the asset stripping of the NHS Estate? Will it open more A&E units? Will it invest in the ambulance service? Will it properly protect whistle blowers? These and many more questions I am sure Kier Starmer will try to ignore before the next General Election as he promotes his pro-business agenda that was launched at the recent Confederation of British Industry conference. Maybe, Cllr Chris Vince would like to have a go at answering them?
Horses for courses surely David. Did you expect Kier Starmer to launch an anti-business agenda at the CBI conference? Any government needs to work with business, commerce and all sectors to create wealth to invest in health and well being. The NHS being bigger than any business exists to provide service to us all and, needs an effective organisational structure. Since its inception this has been a challenge to all governments. No doubt a future labour government will want to make its own changes and will need to work with public sector and business to make them work. Whether that be phasing out outsourcing arrangements; investing in new equipment; getting more value from assets in the NHS Estate and getting the best value from the £billions spent on our treasured NHS.
