Liz asks Urgent Question on social care reform

On Wednesday, I asked an Urgent Question to the Care Minister about the Government’s plans for social care reform.
It has now been almost two years since the Prime Minister promised to ‘fix the crisis in social care.’
Yet, at the start of the week we heard that these talks were delayed yet again. This isn’t giving the ‘dignity and security’ to people that Boris Johnson promised – it’s abdicating responsibility.
In the century of ageing, we cannot build a better future for Britain without a decent system of social care. The time for excuses is over. We need a plan for reform, and we need it now.
