Canvassing - Finchley:

In Finchley, the Shadow Health Secretary Ruth Murphy spoke to voters about key issues.

She spoke to one voter about her brief, the NHS:
"The Labour Party has long made the case that the Conservatives have been damaging the NHS with their persistent underfunding and marketisation of the health service, which has led to clinic closures and increased waiting times all around Finchley. But they have also failed to tackle illness at its roots, leading to a worse economy, a more strained NHS and larger waiting times for you and your family.

We'll invest an unprecedented level of funding in the NHS to tackle these issues and remove the multiple taxes on sickness the Conservatives have raised or introduced since they've been in power, but crucially we will make the National Health Service a health service, not a sickness one. We've done that by investing millions more into public health than the Conservatives, but where they make a one off £200 million investment into 'Family Hubs' we'll have a cost neutral, fleshed out plan to reduce health inequality, which benefits you and your family."

When another expressed concerns on crime, she responded: "We understand the worry and anxiety families across Finchley have when they see rising crime. Nobody wants their hard work, property or even life taken from them by criminals who have no respect for the rule of law. The Conservatives' messing around with their disastrous Terrorism Bill and cuts has done nothing to tackle crime. Labour's Shadow Budget has proven we will. We'll put more bobbies on the beat but also invest so that we tackle crime from its very origins. It's a comprehensive strategy that will keep the people of Finchley safer."

She discussed having a candidate that can proudly represent London with another constituent:
 "When London was empowered with a voice, our previous Prime Minister and outgoing Member of Parliament Margaret Thatcher decided it didn't deserve one and was quick to take that voice away. 

We think people in Finchley should make decisions closer to home. And that is what we'll do - unlike the Tories we'll focus on decentralising, not centralising, power, and that starts in the nation's capital."
