To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how his Department has calculated the figures for the financial liability for sleep-in overnight care in the social care sector.
Answer (Caroline Dinenage)
The Government has commissioned market analysis to assess the impact on the sector, however this forms part of the evidence base that is being used to assess options and is subject to further analysis and refinement. Consequently there is no timetable for publication.
The Government recognises the pressures these liabilities are placing on providers of social care, and we are exploring options to minimise any impact on the sector.
