'Tissues of lies' over NHS claim by Mark Drakeford

Health Minister Mark Drakeford has launched a stinging attack on the Conservatives for telling a "tissue of lies" about the state of the Welsh NHS.

UK Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt claimed patients in Wales were getting a "second-class" service.

Mr Drakeford accused him of selectively quoting from an unpublished report into NHS services in the UK.

But Mr Hunt said the findings of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development should not be withheld.
