Corbyn warns NHS ‘up for grabs’ in pre-Christmas general election

Jeremy Corbyn accused the Tories of putting the NHS "up for grabs" as he clashed with Boris Johnson in the final Prime Minister's Questions before the general election.

The two leaders used their encounter over the Commons dispatch box to draw the battle lines for the forthcoming campaign, with the future of healthcare set to be a key issue.
