Testing: Tories' 5bn gift to private sector

  (Click to enlarge)

Never mind expanding NHS labs or building new public science facilities. The Tories want their mates in big business to mop up from the social necessity of mass corona testing.

They're proposing a 5 billion handout to the private sector over two years. The government funding will go towards 'Lighthouse Laboratories' - another of the Tories' pandemic privatisation schemes (see 'Tories using pandemic to shift lab testing out of NHS' at socialistparty.org.uk).
