HL Deb 16 January 1997 vol 577 cc34-5WA
Lord Burnham

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will place a copy of the current draft of the Community Care (Residential Charges) Bill in the Library.

Baroness Cumberlege

Copies of the preliminary draft of the Community Care (Residential Charges) Bill have been placed in the Library. This draft has served as a basis for informal discussions with the financial services industry, local authority associations and other interested bodies. The Government will be publishing a final draft together with a policy statement in the near future; the current draft is purely a working draft and policy details will be given in the statement.
