Johnson: We won't do a Myners

Was Alan Johnson having a dig at Lord Myners earlier?

He was being questioned about whether the Chief Exec of Stafford Hospital would be given a "golden pay-off".

The hospital was recently found to have "appalling" standards by the Healthcare Commission, after which the Chief Exec Martin Yeates was suspended on full pay.

Johnson said: "We do not want to see – on these benches and on the benches opposite – any reward for failure creeping into the health service which has been so apparent in other sections of the economy."

Meeoow. It'll be an interesting debriefing after a good day for the DoH team in the Commons.
