Fix for social care delayed again as Rishi Sunak tries to find £10bn

The Times says social care reforms are unlikely to be announced until the autumn at the earliest amid continued disputes within government over how to pay for them.

This week Boris Johnson delayed a meeting with Rishi Sunak, the chancellor, and Matt Hancock, the health secretary, to discuss the reforms. He has ruled out using rises in income tax, VAT and national insurance to pay for social care in England, making it “extremely difficult” for the chancellor to find the £10 billion needed.
