Liz calls for social care reform in Covid-19 debate

[13/01/2021 | No comment]

Yesterday I opened the General Debate on Covid-19 on behalf of the Labour Party. In this time, I raised the issue of the Government’s failure to act on social care, the pressures on carers, and the urgent need to vaccinate all care home staff and residents.

The Prime Minister has repeatedly failed to deliver promises to reform social care. While the vaccine may be a light at the end of the tunnel, we urgently need to see a plan to fix the sector.
