Holding answer received on 23 March 2015

Spending figures can be found in the revenue outturn returns published on the Local Authority Revenue Expenditure and Financing tables on gov.uk.

Despite the need to pay off the deficit left by the last Labour Government, net current expenditure on social care has increased from £20.962 billion in 2009-10 to £22.089 billion in 2014-15 (budget).

Government initiatives like the Better Care Fund are joining up the NHS and social care, so savings can be delivered through joint working and outcomes improved.
