Labour makes public service pledge

Jeremy Corbyn has said that the current government are ‘starving’ the NHS and schools of the resources they need, as the Labour leader pledged support for UK public services.

Promising to rebuild public services by investing billions in the NHS and social care, Corbyn, alongside shadow Health Secretary Jon Ashworth and shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner, said that Labour invest £37 billion in the NHS and £8 billion in social care by the end of the next Parliament if it wins the election.

Addressing education, Corbyn re-emphasised Labour’s plans to cap school class sizes at 30 for five to seven-year-olds and provide free school meals to all primary school children - a policy which the Conservative party are planning to scrap.
