Community Care (Residential Charges) Bill
§ 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 35WA 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.
