Motion text

That this House acknowledges the result of the BBC's NHS Day poll where respondents called on the Government to make free long-term care for the elderly its top funding priority; notes too the recent report of the Institute for Public Policy Research which also gave strong support to the case for free long-term care; recalls that the previous EDM 351 calling for free long-term care has been signed by 126 honourable Members by 19th March; considers that free long-term care is a vital service and recognises that its provision is of great concern to people across the whole country; and therefore calls on the Government fully to fund both personal and nursing care so that it is free at the point of use throughout the United Kingdom.
