Labour’s manifesto pledges to set NHS funding at £200bn by 2030, which is £20bn below inflation. This does not include the inevitably hike in inflation due to their other economic policies.
The news comes at a bad time as it is revealed the party plans state hand outs of over £45bn, more than enough to plug the £20bn gap and invest in the NHS.
The events mean that Yukub is the only candidate for Prime Minister that supports funding the NHS, as the LPUK manifesto confirm speculations they would abolish the institution.
It is understood that Conservative MPs and candidates will embark on a “save our NHS” campaign, with just two days left.
