Relatives of patients at hospitals in England would be able to park their car free of charge under a Labour plan. In a national manifesto pledge the Labour Party said that parking charges would be abolished because they were “a tax on serious illness”.
Labour said it would cover the lost revenue with an 8 per cent rise in insurance premium tax to 20 per cent for private health insurance products. It said the tax rise would be enough to cover the £162 million that English hospitals raised annually from car parking charges.
