Residential care will be ‘free’ under Labour plan
Roland Watson and Tom Baldwin
"Elderly people who have been in residential care for two years will have the costs paid for the rest of their lives under Labour plans to reshape the welfare state, The Times has learnt.
"The £1 billion proposal is aimed at allowing thousands of families to keep their homes and savings. It is seen as a key step towards creating a comprehensive national care service.
"Andy Burnham, the Health Secretary, will commit Labour today to providing a system of universal care for the elderly funded by compulsory contributions from all."
