I agree. It often happens in a residential care setting that we have both sets of people—self-funders and those funded by social  services. When we discussed a previous amendment, I mentioned the scenario, which is not uncommon, of somebody who requires nursing care, but who social services fund at the residential rate in a private home. People who suffer the same problems can be treated unequally, and that is a matter of great concern.
