Politics: New Labour ward

Stephen Timms, chief secretary to the Treasury, took part in a visit to the neonatal unit at Newham General Hospital in east London, organised by premature baby charity Bliss. Timms is one of several policy makers the charity is meeting this month to discuss how policies on neonatal care can be improved. Bliss is also pushing for a parliamentary debate on the shortage of resources for sick and premature babies - it has so far persuaded 91 MPs to sign an early day motion on the subject.

Timms, Labour MP for East Ham, said: "I want to ensure we do everything we can to support families at this important point in their lives together."
