Our NHS should not be up for sale – Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the US ambassador’s comments on the NHS and future trade deals, said:

“The ambassador’s comments are terrifying, and show that a real consequence of a no deal Brexit, followed by a trade deal with Trump, will be our NHS up for sale. This absolutely should not be on the table.

“Nigel Farage and the Tories want to rip apart our publicly funded and provided NHS. Labour will always defend it.”
