Suggested Amendment

"leave out from 'fairness' to 'time' in line 6, and insert 'welcomes the healthy state of the nation's finances due to the prudent actions taken by the Government over the last four years which has enabled expenditure on public services, particularly the NHS to benefit the elderly, without harming the improvement of other public services.'."

Original Motion Text

That this House welcomes the National Health Service Plan's commitment to a care system founded on the principles of equity and fairness; regrets that the Plan discriminates against older people with chronic and long term illness, by continuing to means-test them for their care; believes that the Plan creates a fault-line between nursing and personal care; further believes that the Plan fails even to provide nursing care free on the basis of need limiting the concession to registered nurse time; and calls on the Government to implement the Royal Commission's proposals for personal and nursing care to be provided on the basis of a person's assessed need not means.
