NHS funding questioned by younger MPs25th August 2009
A survey by ComRes on behalf of BMI Healthcare has found that 42% of MPs who were born later than 1960 thought free NHS healthcare was "sustainable".
72% of those born pre-1950 believed in the sustainability of the service. Andrew Hawkins, chief executive of ComRes, said: "Given that we expect a relatively high turnover of MPs at the next general election, perhaps more than a third of the house, we should expect that the direction of travel for the house is towards more support for private sector involvement in the health service."
