Press Release   •   Jan 18, 2010 10:47 GMT

“Many people will question Andrew Lansley’s judgement and the impact that these donations have on Conservative health policy," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Health Secretary.

Commenting on reports that Andrew Lansley, the Conservative health spokesperson, is being bankrolled by the head of one of the biggest private health providers to the NHS, Norman Lamb said:

“This is a staggering conflict of interest which completely undermines the Tories claim that the NHS would be safe in their hands.

“Many people will question Andrew Lansley’s judgement and the impact that these donations have on Conservative health policy.

“With Labour in the pockets of the unions and the Tories taking money from private health firms, only the Liberal Democrats can be trusted to run our NHS.”
