Andrew Lansley hits back over NHS bill

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley says the government is "committed" to the NHS bill, amid reports that three Tory cabinet ministers have concerns.

Tim Montgomerie, of the grassroots ConservativeHome website, said he was prompted to write a critical editorial by the ministers' intervention.

Mr Lansley said his party was "working together" on NHS reform in England.

He denied that he personally had lost Conservative support - as Labour said the bill should be dropped.

Iain Watson reports.
