Twenty Members of the House of Lords, with wide-ranging experience of and expertise in health and social care issues, contributed to the main debate on the Personal Care at Home Bill on 1 February
The Bill would implement free personal care at home for those in most need and Members of the Lords discussed subjects including healthcare reform, current charges for personal care at home and reablement support (physiotherapy and personal support) to help people after a fall, when their health deteriorates, or following a period in hospital.
A vote took place on a motion to delay the next stage of the Bill - committee stage - until the Government had provided more information on how the Bill would be implemented.
The motion was defeated and the committee stage - line by line examination of the Bill - is scheduled for 22 February.
