Motion text

That this House utterly condemns the Government’s attempts to classify existing refurbished hospitals as completely new hospitals; notes the Health Secretary’s admission that not all of the so-called 40 new hospitals promised for England by 2030 will be brand new; further notes that refurbishments and new wings are also included in the figure; celebrates the continued dedicated service of the beloved NHS; also notes with concern the deleterious impact that this Government decision has on democracy and trust in politicians; and calls on the Government to cease using such cynical tactics to mislead the public.
