Tories prepare to squander more billions by selling off “surplus” NHS land

On the day the government admitted it bungled a property deal involving Ministry of Defence homes, ministers have announced a plan to sell off NHS land.

Do they plan to lose billions of pounds on that, as well?

It should be clear to everybody by now that the Conservative Party does not have the wherewithal to conduct transactions involving public property in anything like a responsible manner.

With the NHS plan in the Naylor Report, we know that the service is starved of resources and it is madness to take even more away from it.

Worse still is the fact that the Tories aren’t interested in getting a good price for the land. They’ll sell it to some friends of theirs at a preferential rate and pass any losses on to the taxpayer, as they usually do.

It’s the same old Tory story – privatise the profits and nationalise the debts.

The Tories have officially backed a controversial report which critics fear could lead to the biggest sell-off of NHS property in history.

The Naylor Report recommended selling around £2 billion of “surplus land” owned by the health service to build 26,000 homes.

It attracted grave concern from campaigners when Theresa May suggested she would back it last summer. And today, health minister Lord O’Shaughnessy gave the report the official government seal of approval.

The announcement came just hours after it was revealed bungling Ministry of Defence chiefs have lost billions of pounds in a disastrous property deal by selling off thousands of homes – then renting them back from the buyer.
