Labour accuses Government of 'negligence' over ambulance worker dispute

Deputy Labour leader Angela Rayner accused the Government of negligence in its handling of the dispute with ambulance workers. She told reporters in Westminster: “We’ve seen actually across the ambulance service the crisis that’s engulfing our ambulance service… in the North West, in my area, the ambulance service saying please do not ring for an ambulance unless it is absolutely, desperately needed and advising people to get taxis. The system is at breaking point. “The Health Secretary has failed to meet with their health trade unions throughout the whole summer. They knew this was coming and they again negligently did nothing about it. “The frustration for me is there is a common theme with all of these disputes and that is this Government failing to act in the interests of British people.”
