Chancellor Responds to Lords Adult Social Care Committee Autumn Statement Letter

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has responded to a letter sent by the House of Lords Adult Social Care Committee to him, and Steve Barclay MP, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in November which said that the Autumn Statement left many questions unanswered, both in terms of the breakdown of the funding that has been made available for adult social care, and the Government’s strategy and vision for adult social care.

The letter expressed disappointment that the Autumn Statement made no reference to unpaid carers and asks what targeted support has been made available for those who provide ‘the backbone of our health and social care systems.’

The Chancellor has now set out a detailed response to Baroness Andrews, Chair of the House of Lords Adults Social Care Committee concerns, and can be viewed here:
