Commenting on Gordon Brown’s announcement that 1.6 million people who have or have had cancer are to be offered free one-to-one care in their homes, Norman Lamb said:

“No one denies that cancer suffers deserve the best possible care and that this is an attractive proposition, but the obvious question is has it been properly thought through and how exactly will it be funded?
