Progress is being made in reducing "unacceptable" delays in transferring patients from ambulances into A&E departments, the Department for Health insist.
Figures released by Labour claim nearly 300,000 ambulances were forced to wait outside A&E departments last year.
People rely on ambulances coming quickly in life and death situations and long handovers are completely unacceptable.
We're already making good progress in reducing the number of patients waiting for 30 minutes or longer - down by almost a third last winter - though there's always more the NHS can do.
