Govt docs confirm NHS part of US trade talks - Corbyn

Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn revealed on Wednesday a dossier of official documents that he says proves the United Kingdom's National Health Service (NHS) is "up for sale" in the trade talks with the United States.

Corbyn asserted the 451 pages of documents from July 2017 to "just a few months ago" called UK-US Trade Working Group "leaves Prime Minister Boris Johnson's denials in absolute tatters." Minutes from the meeting provide evidence the drug prices in the UK would rise if a deal is reached with Washington, he stated.

In addition, the US side offered to give the British their lines to use to defend chlorinated chicken, while refusing to allow a mention of climate change in the deal, Corbyn said, citing parts of the dossier.
