Boris Johnson refuses to deny that our NHS is for sale under his government

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on Boris Johnson refusing to deny that our NHS is for sale under his government, said:

“Forced NHS privatisation has doubled under the Conservatives and Boris Johnson has refused to rule out expanding this further.

“You can’t trust the Tories on the NHS. They will increase privatisation even further and do a deal with Donald Trump that will see as much as £500m more a week sent to US corporations.”

Notes to Editors:

  • In a BBC interview this evening, Boris Johnson declined the opportunity to “rule out expanding the use of the private sector in the health service”.
