Answer for Summer A&E Crisis (Supplementary) [1]

Obviously I do not have statutory control over health care.  I am aware that there is a wodge of funding to help with A&Es over the winter period, which was announced, I think, last month.  One of the purposes of my meeting with Jeremy [Hunt] is to talk about what slice London will get of that and how it can be used to help in London.
