Editor’s blog Wednesday 26 May 2010: Commons health select committee chair to be a Conservative

It's not unduly newsworthy, but interesting to note that the usually reliable Iain Dale's Diary blog says that the next health select committee will have a Conservative MP in the chair.

The health select committee can do a significant amount of good work. Kevin Barron MP was an effective chair, and it seemed to attract few accusations of bias or ineptitude. Independent MP Dr Richard Taylor's presence will be missed, as we noted previously.

Good luck to whoever forms the nest committee. There will be much to investigate ahead.
