Peter Aldous calls for end to uncertainty and solution to social care funding

7th November 2017

Following the recent ruling that social care providers may have incorrectly paid workers below legal minimum wage hourly rates for sleep-in shifts, Peter Aldous has called on the Government to urgently work with providers to end uncertaintly and find a long term solution to the funding of the social care sector.

The Government’s new interim compliance scheme, announced last week, unfortunately adds to the uncertainty facing the social care sector. May I urge the Minister to do all she can to ensure that, as quickly as possible, the Government get back round the table with the sector to find an acceptable long-term solution?

I assure my hon. Friend that we are working very hard across Government with the Department of Health and the Department for Communities and Local Government to continue our discussions with the Treasury about possible solutions to the long-term viability of certain providers.
