Boris Johnson to unveil £5.5billion health rescue package by NI rise to clear NHS backlog
The Daily Express says the Prime Minister agreed the plan last night with Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid. He is also expected to put together £10billion annually over the next three years, for social care improvements, as soon as tomorrow’s Cabinet meeting.
In the face of Tory revolt against his plans for a 1.25 per cent NI tax rise to pay for the reforms, Mr Johnson will argue the health and care systems cannot cope without the extra taxpayers’ investment.
