Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on November 27 that his party had obtained official documents that show the NHS will be “on the table” during post-Brexit trade talks with the US.
At a press conference in London, Corbyn produced what he said were 451 pages of “unredacted” documents covering six rounds of negotiations between the UK and US, dating back to 2017.
Labour says the documents show that items such as drug pricing and access to NHS contracts had been discussed.
“The uncensored documents leave Boris Johnson’s denials in absolute tatters,” Corbyn said. “We have now got evidence that under Boris Johnson the NHS is on the table and will be up for sale.”
The Conservatives have repeatedly denied the NHS is up for sale. “The NHS is not on the table in any way,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson told the BBC. He said the claim was being used as a “diversionary tactic” by Labour. Credit: Jeremy Corbyn via Storyful
