Andrew Lansley cancelled his visit to St. Mary’s hospital, Portsmouth at the last minute. He claimed he had urgent parliamentary business. He did have to try to explain why he had vetoed publication of the risks to the NHS as a result of his so called reforms. However he still had ample time after his speech to get to Portsmouth if he had wanted to. Lansley bottled it and didn’t want to face angry strikers. Protesters were determined that any Government minster who comes to Portsmouth will be met with protest.
