Andy Burnham on NHS overhaul plans

The government's controversial plans to reform the NHS in England are expected to come in for criticism this week in a report by senior MPs.

The Commons Health Select Committee - which is led by a Conservative and has a majority of coalition MPs - is likely to attack Health Secretary Andrew Lansley's strategy of trying to save billions of pounds while attempting to carry out a major overhaul of the service.

Andy Burnham, shadow health secretary, spoke to the BBC to give Labour's reaction to the plans.
