Kevin Barron (Rother Valley, Labour)
How many health professional regulatory bodies has the Secretary of State met since the publication of the Francis report?
I think I have met most of them, but I have certainly met the General Medical Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and I have talked to them about the reasons they are finding it difficult to remove doctors and nurses from their lists when there are questions about their poor performance.
Relevant, but a bit of a waste of a question that, Kevin.
You need to use much longer sentences with more than one question cleverly disguised within it. This is what the public has to do at a Maltby Town Council Meeting since it was decided (and passed by Cllr Jenny Andrews in her short time as Chair) that only one question per person may be asked.
There’s a certain skill to this as Councillors and MPs have long practised the art of deflection of relevant questions to make them appear irrelevant.
