NHS bill: Lib Dem peers urge rewrite ahead of Lords debate

Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords are launching a new attempt to rewrite the government's controversial plans for the NHS in England.

The peers have drawn up amendments to the Health and Social Care Bill, which returns to the Lords for debate later.

They want to scrap plans to allow the Competition Commission to review the development of competition in the NHS.

Fiona Trott reports.
