British Minister: Boycotting Israel Will Undermine Our Health System

Responding to a question about the cost to the government if “Israeli-owned and Israeli-based companies were banned from supplying generic medicines to the National Health Service, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Health David Mowat warned that a boycott of Israeli products would cause a NHS shortfall of “more than 100 million”prescriptions.

He added: “Banning these supplies would most likely cause significant shortages of some medicines important for patient health, have a significant impact on competition and in all likelihood increase prices paid by the NHS.”

If the BDS movement doesn’t take off around the world, it is likely due to the great benefit that Israeli products give rather than any moral integrity on politicians’ part.
