Guido Fawkes today drew attention to two responses by Conservative MPs to the legal opinion published by 38 Degrees about the Health and Social Care Bill – one by Stephen Phillips, and another by Guy Opperman.

But the Department of Health has also published its own response – no doubt written by the lawyers working on the Bill. It covers only the changes the Bill makes to the Secretary of State’s functions – in particular the repeal of his duty to provide a comprehensive health service – not the EU law points I wrote about last week. I may get a chance to comment on it later – but in the meantime, here it is.
