Volume 713: debated on Tuesday 20 October 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they are considering setting a level of income above which no-one can claim social care benefits. [HL5544]

The Green Paper Shaping the Future of Care Together lays out the Government's vision for a national care service and considers how we can make this fair, simple and affordable for everyone. As part of this, we will need to consider how best to target resources at those most in need of support. The Green Paper is an opportunity to consider a range of options on how best to achieve this. We are currently consulting on all of the options considered in the Green Paper, in our Big Care Debate, which will run until 13 November this year.
