MORE FROM THE COMMITTEE

Last week we laid out some of the findings from the report published in August by the House of Commons’ Committee for Levelling up.


There were concerns that the funding for social care "wouldn't touch the sides."


It also expressed concern that the majority of funding raised from the levy will go to the NHS and that the money earmarked for social care will be for introducing reforms, rather than helping ease cost pressures.


Committee chair Clive Betts said an extra £7bn a year was needed to address funding shortfalls.


"The issue is going to grow more profound and if we don't address it then the pressures on the NHS and the pressures on families who are trying to support their loved ones without the proper resources are just going to grow and grow" he said.


"As a civilised society we have to address it we have to make sure that finance is available."
