Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is reportedly to demand that the Cabinet commit to spending an additional £100 million a week on the NHS – after Brexit.
Ben Bradshaw MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:
"The NHS desperately needs more funding. What it doesn’t need is more lies and headline-grabbing bluster from Boris Johnson.
“He and other Leave campaigners in the Cabinet know they lied to the public by promising Brexit would deliver £350m a week for the NHS.
“Brexit is badly damaging the NHS’s staffing levels and funding. If Boris and his colleagues actually valued our health service they would not be pushing for a hard Brexit, which is the greatest threat the NHS faces.”
