Quotes

"Let's start with the private health insurers. I think, either removing them or making it easier for people to have options that don't include ineffective treatments would be a good thing for both them and the consumers of that private health insurance. I would like to see the evaluation that the NHMRC has done for homeopathy extended to other areas of complementary and alternative medicine. I'd like consumers, in particular, to be a little more wary and sceptical of claims about complementary and alternative medicines, and in particular from this review, the impact of traditional homeopathy."
Ratan Tata was given the honour for his "services to UK/India relations, inward investment to the UK and philanthropy"
Its chairman Graeme Hawkins wrote to Hehir saying: "Because those contracts were with insurers that share a brand, you believe one or other (or both) should cover those costs. Unfortunately, we do not agree with that position." - © Fairfax NZ News
"HMRC is committed to protecting its customers' information. We shall be consulting further on implementing the proposals for sharing anonymised data, and would only take forward specific measures where there was a clear public benefit and subject to suitable safeguards."
