Justice CommitteeWritten evidence from Tristan Lane

NHS Risk Register

I would like to express my concern and disgust at the appalling abuse of ministerial powers portrayed by Andrew Lansley MP. His decision to veto the release of the NHS Risk Register under the Freedom of Information Act shows a hideous contempt for the democratic process and a complete misreading of the public feeling.

This action is undignified and one has to consider whether Mr Lansley is an appropriate person for the role of Secretary of State for Health.
