Asked if he would legislate to protect the NHS from US intervention, the PM said:

We can do free trade deals with countries around the world but under us the NHS is not for sale. Its not going to be on any kind of international trade negotiation.
This is pure Loch Ness Monster, Bermuda Triangle stuff.

The NHS, free at the point of use, is a fantastic service and we not only believe in it, but are investing more in it than at any time in recent memory and well continue to do so.

which is a complicated way of saying no we won't legislate. Whatever we may believe at the moment, at a later date we or someone who comes after us can do what they like.
