Labour pledges to cut cancer test waiting times
No-one in England will have to wait more than a week for cancer tests and results under a future Labour government, the party has pledged.
Labour said the £750m cost of implementing the pledge by 2020 would be covered by a levy on tobacco firms.
There is currently a recommended six-week limit for diagnostic tests in England, including tests to diagnose cancer.
