UK: NHS 'up for sale' under Johnson - Corbyn as he reveals US-UK trade talks dossier

United Kingdom, London
November 27, 2019 at 15:06 GMT +00:00 · Published

Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn revealed a dossier in London on Wednesday that he said proved that under UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson the NHS would be "on the table and will be up for sale," in any trade talks with the United States.

"We've now got evidence that under Boris Johnson the NHS is on the table and will be up for sale. He tried to cover it up in a secret agenda but today it's been exposed", said Corbyn.

"We are talking here about secret talks for a deal with Donald Trump after Brexit. A deal that will shape our country's future. These reports pull back on the curtain on the secrecy that's being plotted for us all, behind closed doors, by the Conservative government. This is what they didn't want you to know," he added.

The Conservative party denied Corbyn's allegations with Johnson branding the release of the dossier a "diversionary tactic," while speaking at a campaign event in Cornwall on Wednesday.
