“The honourable gentleman simply doesn’t have a policy when it comes to this question. He talks about wanting to end the strikes. The question for him is simple then: why does he not support our minimum safety legislation?”
“We all know why … it’s because he’s on the side of his union paymasters, not patients.”
The Labour leader also highlighted NHS waiting lists during the debate, accusing the PM of not saying by how much he will reduce them by or when.
Sir Keir said: “So much for the accountability that he wants. As ever with this Prime Minister, you scratch the surface and you find there is nothing there.
“Last month, 1.4 million people waited more than four weeks for a GP appointment. When Labour left government you were guaranteed an appointment in two days. When does the Prime Minister expect to get back to that?”
Mr Sunak replied: “When it comes to waiting lists we have already eliminated two-year wait lists – done last year. We are on track this spring to eliminate those waiting 18 months, with a clear plan to go further to eliminate those waiting 52 weeks by next spring.”
The Prime Minister said NHS waiting lists were one of his five priorities, adding: “What are his? They seem to change every single week. First he was against NHS outsourcing, now he is apparently in favour of it.”
He described Sir Keir as “inconsistent” and “unprincipled”.
