Queen's Speech — Programme for Government — Health and Social Care — 16 Jan 2020 at 16:51
The majority of MPs voted against requiring a plan to end the crisis in social care and against at least a 4 per cent per year real terms increase in health spending.
The debate on the content of the government's legislative programme outlined in the Queens' speech is technically, and traditionally, on the subject of a message of thanks which the house is to send the monarch for making the speech.
MPs were considering the following motion:
- That an Humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, as follows:
- Most Gracious Sovereign,
- We, Your Majesty’s most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled, beg leave to offer our humble thanks to Your Majesty for the Gracious Speech which Your Majesty has addressed to both Houses of Parliament.
the amendment rejected in this vote was:
- at the end of the Question to add:
- “but respectfully regrets that the Gracious Speech fails to ensure that the National Health Service and social care will be properly funded; and
- calls for the Government to bring forward a plan and additional funding to end the crisis in social care and provide for at least a 4 per cent per year real terms increase in health spending.”.
