I know that, I was being obtuse — if it needs additional clarification like that post hoc then the pledge in the manifesto is either poorly written or deliberately misleading.
If they had simply said 31,000 more nurses and 19,000 existing nurses retained it wouldn’t be an issue.
So I’ll ask again — should we all agree that, as long as by the end of this Parliament, there are ~330,000 nurses we should consider the pledge met?
@String — as OP and master of the list, do you concur?
I concur, and will update the OP to clarify.
