BBC News – Lib Dem members oppose NHS reforms in conference vote

leave a comment »

Lib Dem activists have voted at their spring conference in Gateshead to oppose the government’s controversial bill to reform the NHS in England.

The party leadership lost a ballot on the issue by 314 votes to 217.

The decision is not binding on the government, but BBC correspondent Norman Smith said it was a major setback for the Lib Dem leadership.

The party leadership has argued that it has secured major concessions to the bill and it should now become law.
