Cambridge MP flips again on NHS

Cambridge MP Julian Huppert last night failed to back Labour’s last ditch attempt to stop the Health and Social Care Bill – the final stage in an extraordinary series of different positions he has taken on the Bill. Labour argued that final agreement on the Bill should be delayed until information on the risk register had been made available, as the Government has been ordered to do. Mr Huppert had previously supported a motion demanding that the information be made available.

Chair of Cambridge Labour Daniel Zeichner says that the Cambridge MP appears to take a different position almost every week: “Last week Mr Huppert was piously telling us that he could not support the Bill because it will damage the NHS. This week, when he has the chance to do something about it, he fails yet again to do so. Sometimes he has been for the Bill, sometimes he has been against it, and sometimes he hasn’t voted at all. It is an extraordinary failure to stand up for people in Cambridge who are solidly against these changes to our NHS.”
