Boris Johnson outlines new health and social care tax

A new health and social care tax will be introduced across the UK to pay for reforms to the care sector and NHS funding in England.

Boris Johnson said it would raise £12bn a year, designed to tackle the health backlog caused by the Covid pandemic and to bolster social care.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said the tax broke a promise made by Boris Johnson at the last election.
