Steve McCabe MP asked whether the leader of the Commons was aware 'of the war being waged by South Birmingham CHC to prevent the building of a new hospital in south Birmingham'.

'It appears that 14 individuals are prepared to use the health council as a cover for their campaign, which is based on information they know to be false. How is that an acceptable use of public funds?'

The question also asked for 'a debate on the funding and accountability of CHCs'.
