Motion text

That this House welcomes the recent investigations by Sir Derek Wanless and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) into the funding of long-term care; notes the key conclusion of both reports that the present system of long-term care funding in England is neither fair, intelligible nor sustainable; further notes the findings of the research commissioned by the JRF that the introduction of `free personal care' in Scotland as recommended by the Royal Commission on Long-Term Care has been containable within the Executive's resources and has brought real benefits; regrets the continuing failure of the Government to act fully on the Royal Commission's recommendations in England; welcomes the recent indications from the former social care minister that this issue is under active review; and calls on the Government to bring forward as a matter of urgency new proposals to address effectively a situation that causes distress and financial hardship to thousands of people.
