Jeremy Corbyn Tackled By Michael Fabricant Over Comment On His Cancer Treatment

The usual joust of PMQs then began, with Corbyn tackling May on her government’s foreign workers climbdown and refusal to give parliament a vote on the terms of Brexit.

But Fabricant sprung up after the session drew to a close to then accuse Corbyn of implying “I had had special treatment under the NHS”. 

“Can I say that that is completely outrageous and is not the case, and perhaps the Leader of the Opposition would like to clarify or even apologise to me and the NHS workers who worked so well for my care,” Fabricant said.

Corbyn hit back, retorting he had done “no such thing” and that he “wished him well, as I wish everybody else well who is being treated in the NHS”.

“I love and value our NHS,” the Labour leader continued, “because it treats everybody equally, gives everybody the best possible care they can and the best possible recovery recovery prospects that are available to them. 

“I said no such thing and I think it’s unfortunate the Honourable Member thinks I did.”
