General election: Corbyn says five more years of Tories ‘disastrous’ for public services – live

31 May

New analysis of the Tory threat has revealed that if the current rate of deterioration under the Tories continues, by 2022 our health and education services could be facing huge problems. It could mean:

In a Tory NHS and social care system:

5.5 million people on waiting lists in England, 1.8 million more than at present.

Almost 1.5 million older and vulnerable people with unmet social care needs.

In a Tory education system:

650,000 pupils crammed into primary classes of over 30.

Families left almost £450 worse off per child as a result of the Tories’ plan to scrap free school meals for 1.7 million children.
