Home Care Services: Finance

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 16 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Eddisbury (Mr. O’Brien) of 25 February 2010, Official Report, column 751W, on home care services, how much he estimates the cost of providing free personal home care will be, including costs for those who already get this care for free, in 2010-11. (320788)

The projected costs of implementing the Personal Care at Home Bill are set out in the impact assessment, which has already been placed in the Library. These do not include costs for those who already receive free home care; this will not represent an additional expense to councils with adult social services responsibilities, as they are already funding such care.
