Labour: Government 're-announcing' migrant charges

Labour has accused the Government of "grand-standing" with its "re-announcement" on charging migrants for the use of some NHS services.

Shadow health minister Lord Hunt said:

Yet again, Ministers are putting spin before substance - their own report undermines the attempts to grab more headlines with this re-announcement. Labour is in favour of improving the recovery of costs from people with no entitlement to NHS treatment.

Rather than more grand-standing, the Government needs to deliver practical, thought through changes to make that happen.
