Liz Kendall responds to Matt Hancock morning media comments on social care reform’

Liz Kendall MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Social Care, responding to Matt Hancock’s failure to set out when the Government will deliver their promises on social care, said:

“Since Boris Johnson first promised he had a plan to ‘fix the crisis in social care once and for all’ more than 23 months ago, 2 million people have had their requests for care turned down, care workers and families have been stretched to breaking point, and thousands of people have had to sell their homes to pay for their care.

“After a decade of failure, the time for Conservative excuses has long passed – Ministers must bring forward plans as a matter of urgency, and provide all older and disabled people with the dignity and security they deserve.”
