David Cameron has said it is right that people "who don't have a right to use our NHS get properly charged for it" after Labour MP Dianne Abbott said plans to charge foreign nationals were "xenophobic".
Speaking to MPs, Mr Cameron defended the plans saying:
"British families pay about £5,000 a year in taxes to pay for our NHS and it is right to make sure that those people who don't have a right to use our NHS get properly charged for it.
"I had hoped there would be all-party support for it but Labour's public health minister has condemned it as xenophobic so I assume they are now going to oppose this sensible change which working people in this country will roundly support."
