Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Adult Social Care (28 Nov 2016)

Kate Hollern: It has been interesting to listen to the Minister’s responses, which demonstrate that the Government do not accept that there is a crisis in adult social care. That denial leads me to worry about the 1.2 million people who cannot even access a service. Local authorities have had to cut between 40% and 50% of their budget.
