I remind the Committee that with this we are discussing amendment 49, in clause 2, page 2, line 34, at end insert—

“‘provider of care’ means any person (‘A’) who provides ongoing emotional, psychological or physical support to another person (‘B’) with the aim of enabling B to live independently, whether or not A is paid for this support;”.

An amendment to ensure a carer of a person with disabilities is included in the definition of “personally connected”.
