Brexit and the Labour Market (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (8 Feb 2018)

Lord Balfe: ...of domestic and care workers. You can talk about all the productivity improvements you like but you cannot change an elderly person’s bathing regime by applying productivity. There are more people getting old; there is more need for care in the community—and one of the great neglected areas is protection for carers. The people who are standing at the bus stop at 7.30 in the...
