Further delay to social care green paper

Whilst Brexit has played a part in delaying the document, issues with the early proposals put out for consultation has also contributed to the slow progress. The long-awaited document will consult on policy ideas such as: a more generous means-test, a cap on lifetime social care charges, an insurance contribution model, a care ISA and tax-free withdrawals form pension pots.

The latest deadline to be missed was at the end of March, after Hancock had told parliament that he intended to publish it before April. This was the fifth missed deadline, others include: summer 2017, end of 2017, summer 2018, autumn 2018.
