Original motion text

That this House expresses its grave concern at the continuing crisis in care for the elderly in Birmingham and elsewhere in England; recognises the main contributory factor to the crisis is the decision by Birmingham Social Services to pay substantially less than the real cost of providing care for the elderly in care homes; and notes that this practice is threatening to force good quality independent care homes out of business, causing grave distress and confusion to vulnerable, frail and elderly residents in Birmingham.
