Mike Slams Cameron on NHS

On Wednesday 7 December I was successful in the ballot for questions to the Prime Minister here is what I asked

Q8. [85109] Mike Gapes (Ilford South) (Lab/Co-op): The Prime Minister promised:

 “I’ll cut the deficit, not the NHS”.

Why are his Government closing the accident and emergency and maternity services at King George hospital, Ilford, cutting front-line NHS staff and borrowing £158 billion extra? Should he not have said, “I’ll cut the NHS, not the deficit”?

My question and the Prime Ministers pathetic answer were covered on London TV news that evening
