Mr. Whittingdale

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will place a copy of the current draft of the Community Care (Residential Charges) Bill in the Library. [11765]

Mr. Dorrell

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.
