Up to London, with worries about the Health & Care Bill that was debated today. First up, though, a car came for me at about midday and took me to a film studio in Dalston. There I met the Channel 4 documentary team, who interviewed me on my role in the extraordinary case of Marine A. You might remember that I and a small team fought for more than three years to get justice for former Royal Marine Al Blackman. He was caught on film shooting a mortally wounded insurgent in Afghanistan several years ago. He was convicted for murder and sentenced to 10 years in jail, reduced to eight years on appeal. Our eminent QC, Jonathan Goldberg, believed that many aspects of the case had not been heard, not least the mental state of Mr Blackman at the time. We never intended to clear Mr Blackman's name, just to get him a fair hearing. We achieved our aim in the end and his term was reduced to four years when Mr Blackman's 'diminished responsibility' had been taken into account. Channel 4 are doing a 90 minute documentary on this story, which will be edited in January next year. I had Claire and Al's permission to take part, as they are. I was back in the House for some Delegated Legislation, which I was on a three-line whip to attend, as were other colleagues. The first votes on a number of amendments to the Health & Care Bill came at 1900. I then sat in the Chamber to listen to the minister promote the most contentious part of the Bill which was the social care reforms. The new plan, with a cap set at £86,000, is an improvement, but we found out only last week that the Government had moved the goalposts on care costs met by councils, which initially would have counted towards the £86,000 limit, but now do not. Clearly, this would have an adverse effect on the less well-off and I and other colleagues were not happy about this. I made it very clear to my Whip that I could not vote for this and urged the Government to withdraw this element of the Bill and put it back into the expected White Paper, where more thought could be given. We were being bounced and I did not like it. I abstained on this vote to mark my dissatisfaction, as did several others. Nineteen other colleagues voted against the Government. The warning was clear. We were not happy. To confuse matters further, there are other aspects of this Bill which I do not like, either. The mandatory fluoridisation of water is one. First, it's disgusting to drink and, second, why should I be forced to drink the most basic of necessities with fluoride in it! Bills like this one, with add-ons attached, are not easy to deal with and I hope I made my point on the cap. Those who feel similarly to me hope that the Lords will tackle this issue in the other place. Votes came at 2200 and then home.
