Hippocratic !......?

Former health minister and current Labour Party chairman Hazel Blears defended her decision to criticise Government policy by joining a street protest against the closure of maternity services in her constituency. The Salford MP denied that her position was hypocritical. She said: "I am doing what any other constituent Member of Parliament would do.

"I am putting forward the views of the people of Eccles and Salford. They feel very strongly about local services. I am not campaigning against Cabinet policy, which is to ensure that the NHS is the safest and the best that it can be." She denied that her intervention was incompatible with her position as chairman of the party, in which role she is required to impose discipline on other Labour MPs.
