Topical Questions

Sarah Wollaston Chair, Health Committee, Chair, Liaison Committee (Commons)

I recently booked an appointment in the Reading Room. I thought that it would be like an inner circle of hell, and that I would be trapped in there for days reading the sectoral analysis. Indeed, I was there with Mary Creagh. In fact, there were only nine pages on health and social care, and the documents relevant to my Select Committee took me less than an hour to read in their entirety. I believe that in the interests of transparency, these very straightforward documents should be in the public domain. Will the Secretary of State publish them?

The sectoral analysis has already been made available to the Select Committees, as per the motion of the House, and to all Members of this House through the Reading Room. The documents contain a range of information, including sector views, some of which would certainly be of great interest to the other side in these negotiations.
