To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Statement by the first Secretary of State on 16 November 2017 (HCWS25), what progress they have made on the parallel programme of work for the care of younger adults, in particular those with learning disabilities.

The programme of work on adults of working age with care needs, which is led jointly by the Department of Health and Social Care and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, has begun initial engagement with stakeholders. Later this month, the Minister of State for Care (Caroline Dinenage) and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Local Government (Rishi Sunak) will jointly host a roundtable discussion to bring together views from across the sector on the issues facing adults of working age with care needs.

It is important that this work is informed by a range of perspectives and there will be further opportunities for interested stakeholders to feed in their views in due course.
