Jonathan Ashworth responds to OBR chair comments on Government’s lack of provision for NHS

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to comments by the OBR chair on the Government’s lack of provision for ongoing test and trace, vaccinations or NHS backlogs, said:

“Time after time throughout the health crisis Rishi Sunak had got the Covid calls wrong.

“It’s shocking he’s now cutting NHS funding when we must do everything to defeat this deadly virus and bring waiting times down for surgery and cancer care.”
