To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what estimate he has made of the number of the Social Care Compliance Scheme participants that will cease to be viable by the completion of that scheme.

Answer (Caroline Dinenage)

The Social Care Compliance Scheme (SCCS) is an interim scheme administered by HM Revenue and Customs. The SCCS has been designed to assist social care providers in becoming compliant with National Minimum Wage legislation.

HM Revenue and Customs does not discuss individual cases, as such no assessment can be made. However, the Government is exploring options to minimise the impact of sleep-ins liabilities on the social care sector.
