To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when he plans to publish social care green paper; and for what reasons the publication has been delayed.

As an ageing society, we need to reach a longer-term sustainable settlement for social care and we recognise that parliamentary colleagues will wish to engage thoroughly in the debate following publication. The Social Care Green Paper remains a priority for this Government, and the Department is working hard to publish the Green Paper at the earliest opportunity.

Given wider events it was not possible to publish the Green Paper by the end of 2018 and, unfortunately, we cannot currently confirm a publication date.
