Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - I voted in favour of the Peterle report on the EU's health strategy. The report acknowledges that the provision of health care is a Member State matter and I strongly believe that this should remain the case. There are elements in this Parliament and in the EU as a whole who believe that health care should be fully opened up to the fluctuations of the free market, and I wholly reject such notions. However the EU does have an important role to play in the exchange of information and in the promotion of health lifestyles. The Commission must now come forward with concrete proposals for Europewide action in health promotion, whilst safeguarding individual Member States' rights to take their own decisions as to the delivery of health services.
