Motion in the name of Councillor Graham Chapman

This Council expresses its deep disappointment at the Government’s response to the social care crisis in that:

·  the amount of additional funding, both in the short and long term, will not ‘fix the problem’;

·  a number of care homes risk closure and there is nothing in the recent announcement to recognise the problem;

·  the Government will continue to rely on regressive council tax increases to plug gaps;

·  there is no long-term strategy for training, recruiting, sustainable wage growth, and professionalising the sector; and

·  the increase in National Insurance contributions, which was introduced as a solution, will actually make the problem worse.


It calls on the Government to:

·  provide a properly funded comprehensive approach, if necessary via a levy on wealth; and

·  ensure that there is no further call on the council tax to fund increases in social care funding
