Commenting on the Chancellor's social care announcements, Cllr Ray Puddifoot MBE, London Councils’ Executive member for adult social care, said:

“We welcome Government’s recognition of the depth of the crisis in adult social care and that this can only be tackled through urgent investment. We look forward to seeing the detail of what is proposed.

“London has a growing population in need of adult social care services and there are massive pressures building up for the future. We also welcome therefore the announcement of a Green Paper addressing this issue.”
