Liz questions Government on funding for social care

On Monday 9th January I challenged the Heath Secretary on how he plans to tackle the growing crisis in the NHS and social care. Government plans to use council tax rises to try and fill the huge gap in funding for social care are completely inadequate and will only increase inequality as the country’s poorest regions will be least able to raise the money they so desperately need.
