Further, there are concerns that no one quite knows what Lansley is doing, neither the government, nor the public:
One Number 10 insider said: "There is no change in the policy. But Oliver is starting to ask all the important questions that need answers." Another added: "Andrew [Lansley] has all the answers when he is asked the questions about how the implementation of all this will work. We are just not sure they are the right ones."Interestingly, the strength of the opposition to these plans appear to have shaken Lansley, who the FT quotes:
"It does not mean that we will do everything in the way that we first suggested in the white paper. This is a major reform. There are aspects of implementation of the reform that people have made comments on, and we will take them on board."The question is: what parts of the white paper is Lansley intending to drop?
