Social Care vote: Another broken Tory promise

Responding to tonight’s vote on the Health and Care Bill in the House of Commons, Liberal Democrat Health and Social Care Spokesperson Daisy Cooper MP said: “Tonight, the Conservatives have rammed through half-baked proposals which break a promise to struggling families and makes savings exclusively from the least well off.

“Far from levelling up, these changes double down on inequality between the rich and poor. Now, struggling families face the double whammy of tax hikes and potentially losing their home to fund spiraling care costs.

“Liberal Democrats opposed these unfair and divisive plans and will continue to fight for a fair and long term solution which will address the social care crisis facing families every day.”
