Nurses Pay: Lib Dems at PMQs call out pitiful 1% pay rise

Daisy Cooper MP, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats, has called on the Prime Minister to reconsider the real terms pay cut for NHS workers at Prime Minister’s Questions.

Daisy Cooper MP said: “The Government is throwing a staggering £37 billion at a Test & Trace system that we know has made barely any difference but yet it says that it cannot afford to give more than a pitiful 1% pay rise to NHS workers.

“The Prime Minister has said that he owes his life to them, he stood on the steps of No 10 and applauded them. So will the Prime Minister do more than pay lip service and pay them them the wage they deserve.”

The Liberal Democrats are calling for a proper and substantial above real terms pay rise for NHS workers now.
