Amber’s TV refusal to come clean on #DementiaTax is disrespecting families in #Hastings #StLeonards #Rye

May 28, 2017

Commenting on Amber Rudd’s admission the Conservatives are “not sure” what any future cap on social care costs will be, Liberal Democrat Shadow Health Secretary Norman Lamb said: 

“The refusal of the Conservatives to tell us what the cap on social care costs will be shows they are holding the public in contempt.

“Theresa May must stop flip-flopping and do what her party had committed to, implement a £72,000 cap on care.

“Conservative plans for a dementia tax are cruel and not properly thought through. It shows Theresa May is taking people for granted.

“The Liberal Democrats will keep campaigning to scrap the Dementia Tax and ensure no-one has to face catastrophic costs to pay for their care.

“People who want to support us should back our campaign at dementiatax.org.uk.”

Speaking ahead of key hustings meetings, Lib Dem candidate for MP in Hastings & Rye, Nick Perry, said:


“As many local people know, I have spent my career in social care, supporting vulnerable adults. Constituents can be sure that I will fight for answers from Amber on these questions over the coming days and weeks, until we are clear just what the Tories are proposing. Sadly, Amber is disrespecting local families with her current position.”
