Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what information he holds on disbursements of the social care reform grant by each local authority. (256792)

In January 2008, the Department published Local Authority Circular (LAC) (2008) 1.

This Local Authority Circular sets out information to support the transformation of social care set out in “Putting People First”, including the details of the social care reform grant. This new ring-fenced grant provides £520 million from 2008-11 to support councils to help redesign and reshape their systems. Annex A provides a copy of the Social Care Reform Grant Determination to Local Authorities.

A copy of the Local Authority Circular has been placed in the Library and is available at:
