The shadow health secretary says Conservative claims that the NHS would switch to a four day week under a Labour government are “nonsense.”

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Jonathan Ashworth said Labour are promising £6bn on top of what the government announced last year.

Mr Ashworth said: “John McDonnell wants to set up a commission to see if there are ways in which, in 10 years’ time, people’s working hours can be reduced.”
