Boris Johnson again trying to mislead public over hospital building – Ashworth
Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to Boris Johnson’s interview with Sophy Ridge, said:
“Boris Johnson is again trying to mislead people by saying his government will build new hospitals when this claim has been proven to be false.
“It is also laughable for him to say he wants to bring down GP waiting times when under the Conservatives we’re seeing the first sustained fall in GP numbers for 50 years.
“You can’t trust a word Boris Johnson says and you can’t trust the Tories with the NHS.”
