Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Yes, I am going to come on to social care. Yesterday, we put a further £650 million into social care, and we are coming forward with reforms to social care to put it on a sustainable footing for the long term.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Yes, and the constructive approach that the hon. Gentleman has taken on this subject with me over many months, and for years before that, shows the progress that we can make. We are putting £20.5 billion extra into the NHS, and making an uplift like that means that we can turn resources towards preventing ill health in exactly the way that he describes. I pay tribute to the work that...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: We have a plan to improve the cancer workforce and to try to solve some of these problems. Maybe the hon. Gentleman should come over to this side and work with us to put record funding into the NHS. We can only have record funding for the NHS if we have a strong economy.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. People want to see more funding for our NHS, and they are going to get it, but they also want to see all the money being well spent. The Budget confirms that the NHS is the Government’s No. 1 spending priority, just as it is the British people’s No.1 spending priority. This Budget places the Government four-square in the centre of British...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Yes, I can confirm that. The £20.5 billion real-terms funding for the NHS in the Budget is for the NHS itself and will be channelled through NHS England. Of course there are budgets in the Department that are outside the NHS envelope, and they will be settled in the spending review. This is exactly as has been planned, and it was made clear in June. I can tell the House that the...

Matthew Hancock: indicated dissent.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: This is a single settlement for a five-year period so that the NHS can plan again.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I want to make some progress. I received some representations about what we should do on NHS funding. One was from a John from Hillingdon, who called for a 2.2% increase in funding. John said that would make the NHS the “envy of the world”. Others may preach a gospel of envy, but we are getting on with building the NHS to be there for us all. The £20 billion increase I have...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: The £20.5 billion is just for day-to-day running costs—the resource costs. Of course there is a capital budget, too, which includes £4 billion of taxpayers’ money. That goes towards ensuring that we can get the capital built. The critical point is that we have not only that £20.5 billion uplift in running costs but a capital budget. We will make further...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: No. The £84 billion is the cash figure. The £20.5 billion is the real-terms increase by the end of the five years. If we add up all the extra money, we get £84 billion. It is there on page 36 of the Budget, if the hon. Lady wants to look. The biggest single cash increase comes next year, in 2019-20. It is all there in the Red Book.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I pay tribute again to my right hon. Friend, who has worked tirelessly in support of that project. The Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre in Loughborough will link world-class military medical facilities with our NHS. That means lessons learned in the medical field from treating our brave troops who come back from the frontline can be brought into the NHS—for instance, surgical...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: The spending review is next year. What I can guarantee is a £20.5 billion increase in NHS spending. That is the biggest increase in any spending commitment for any public service in the history of this country. [Interruption.] It is a pity that the Leader of the Opposition is not interested and does not want to hear about it. If he stayed, he could also hear about the reforms we are...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: So many of us know just how important air ambulance services are and the countless lives they save. I am delighted that, on top of the £20.5 billion for the NHS—the biggest ever, longest ever cash settlement for any public service in history—there was £10 million for air ambulances.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: It is true that the Labour party in office has always left unemployment higher than it found it; it is true that, while Labour left the deficit higher, we are bringing it down; and it is true that inequality, too, is coming down. Page 8 of the distributional analysis shows that, contrary to what we heard in that paean of gloom from the shadow Chancellor, the biggest rises in full-time...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: As the hon. Lady knows, life expectancy is increasing, and we are forecast to see an increasing number of people live to a good old age. Indeed, the number of people aged 75 and over is set to double in the next 30 years. That is a brilliant achievement, which is in part down to the hard work of our NHS. Cancer survival rates are at a record high, strokes are down by a third and deaths from...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Of course, in Scotland social care is devolved, so—[Interruption.] And in York, the amount of money for social care is going up thanks to the decisions announced yesterday.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The long-term plan needs to ensure that we address the challenges of today and of tomorrow, including dementia, obesity and the rise in mental ill health. It will set out how we are going to address and deliver these changes. The Government believe in an NHS that is free at the point of use for everyone, for the long term.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and we can only have a sustainable NHS if the social care system is also properly supported. The social care Green Paper to be published later this year will set out the options to meet the unprecedented demographic challenge—and what a challenge. Some 70% of people in residential care homes now have dementia. The number of people with dementia is set...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: My hon. Friend is absolutely right; he has put his finger on an incredibly important point. As we spend £20 billion extra on the NHS, we are going to ensure that we train up and attract the people who are going to do the caring.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Yes—part of the £2 billion of extra mental health funding that we announced yesterday is to ensure that there is support in schools, particularly for young people. That is one of the elements of the funding that we announced in the Budget yesterday, and I am very happy to talk to the hon. Lady about the details. The social care Green Paper will address the question of long-term...
