Will the Lib Dems support the NHS reforms?

Having earlier indicated the Health and Social Care Bill will be supported by the Lib Dem leadership, Clegg now appears to have wavered in this view somewhat.

It's not surprising - there is immense unease amongst the wider membership (and, on left of the party, outright opposition) to the reforms amongst the Liberal Democrat Party.

Not for the first time, Clegg - whose view are in many ways firmly to the right of his party - has had to backtrack on his initial support for Tory policy.

Whether this translates into a further challenge from his party this week remains to be seen.
