Miliband: 'Levy tobacco firms to fund fight against cancer'

The Labour Party is pledging that by 2020 no-one in England will wait more than a week for cancer tests and results if it wins the next election.

There is currently a recommended six-week limit for diagnostic tests in England, including tests to diagnose cancer.

Labour leader Ed Miliband said the £750m cost of improving cancer test waiting times would be covered by a levy on tobacco firms.
