Question to the Leader of the House - North Devon District Hospital

Today I was selected by the Speaker to be the final government MP in this parliament to ask a 'Business Question', which is an opportunity to ask for a future debate in the House of Commons.

I sought reassurance from the Leader of the House that any proposed changes to services at North Devon Hospital could be scrutinised in the next parliament.

I am pleased to have secured a commitment that the Commons would indeed have that opportunity, although I hope it won't be necessary and will keep fighting our case.
