Anyone else confused by Matt Hancock's use of the word 'more'?

During the campaign, the document stated the party would add “50,000 more nurses” to the NHS workforce, but it emerged the figure included 18,500 existing nurses who will be encouraged to stay in their posts.

The manifesto says: "We will deliver:
50,000 more nurses, with students receiving a £5,000-£8,000 annual maintenance grant every year during their course to help with their cost of living – and they won’t have to pay it back. Everyone will receive at least £5,000 with further funding in regions or disciplines that are struggling to recruit..."

So does that mean a nurse population of 50,000 more than is presently the case? And will they be equally qualified? huh.gif
