Care Services: Elderly People
House of Lords
Lord Hunt of Kings Heath (Labour)
Earl Howe (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Quality), Health; Conservative)
We know that urgent reform of the care and support system is needed to provide people with more choice and control, and to reduce the insecurity that they and their families face.
We will shortly be publishing the care and support White Paper, and progress report on funding, which will transform care and support. The Government have also committed to publishing a draft Bill for pre-legislative scrutiny in the second session and we plan to do this shortly.
