Care Bill — New Clause 9 — Require Annual Report on Social Care Funding Levels — 10 Mar 2014 at 19:00

  • (2) In subsection (1), the “Joint Care and Support Reform Programme Board” means the board of that name consisting of representatives of (but not limited to): the Local Government Association, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services and the Department of Health.
  • (3) The report mentioned in subsection (1) should include a statement of the satisfaction of the Joint Care and Support Reform Programme Board with (but not limited to)—
  • (a) adequacy of the funding of the provisions in this Act,
  • (b) on-going costs of implementation,
  • (c) an additional five yearly review of the short and medium term cost of setting the eligibility criteria at the level set out in regulations.
