Lord Owen Comments on Leaked Email to Daily Telegraph

Comment by Lord Owen on email obtained by the Daily Telegraph:

There are no secrets in the email that in part are quoted in the Daily Telegraph article below. It reflects my views on the Health and Social Care Bill that I have expressed consistently over many months.  I was sent an email, along with another Crossbencher, from Lord Beecham, part of the Labour front bench team in the House of Lords  saying “I would welcome thoughts on which area of the Bill we should prioritise in terms of amendments, and what specific changes we should seek, bearing in mind the need to attract Crossbench and Lib Dem support”.
