Andrew Bridgen questions Government about extra money for social care

21st March 2017
Andrew Bridgen questions the Government on how it can ensure that extra money raised by local councils for social care is actually spent on social care.

The Minister is quite right that central Government are providing extra money for essential care and allowing local councils to raise a precept on the council tax for social care. How will the Government ensure that councils actually spend that money on social care?


Much of the money will go through the better care fund and there is conditionality on that. We expect councils to spend this money, as they have requested it, on social care and we believe that that will be the case. We understand the pressures and have acted.
