Jeremy Corbyn slams Grenfell firm suing our NHS

Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, responding to news that the construction firm that worked on cladding Grenfell Tower is taking legal action against the Whittington Hospital, said:

“This sums up the broken and rigged system under the Tories. It is appalling that any company should decide to sue our National Health Service, never mind a company that made a profit from cladding Grenfell Tower.”

“Our NHS should not be being sold off to private companies who then sue it, lining the pockets of bosses and shareholders at the expense of the public.

“Labour will put public health before private wealth, end NHS privatisation and ensure that our public services are run for people, not profit.”
