U.K.’s Lansley Says He Shouldn’t Leave Health Role, Times Says

The U.K.’s health minister Andrew Lansley said he shouldn’t be moved from his job before his National Health Service reforms are fully implemented, the London-based Times newspaper reported.

In an interview with the newspaper, Lansley said it would be absurd to replace him before the reforms are in place, which won’t be completed by the end of this year, the Times reported. Prime Minister David Cameron is planning to reshuffle his ministers later this year, the newspaper reported.
