Carers taken for granted by Conservative Government

Responding to the Government’s new white paper proposals on social care, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey MP said: “Carers and their loved ones deserve far more support, but with these proposals the Conservative Government is taking them for granted yet again.

“More than 1.5 million people are missing out on the care they need. To pretend you can fix that with no new funding, and without addressing the huge shortage of staff, is just insulting people’s intelligence.

“Boris Johnson has broken promise after promise on social care. He’s hitting people with an unfair tax rise while failing to protect people from losing their homes.

“Social care is far too important for another Boris bodge. Let’s finally have the serious cross-party talks we need to agree a long-term solution that ensures our loved ones get the high-quality care they deserve.”
