MPs to vote on health and social care tax rise

BBC News says MPs will vote later on whether to raise National Insurance to fund health and social care, a day after Boris Johnson announced the manifesto-breaking move.

The prime minister says it will raise £12bn a year which will be used to tackle the health backlog caused by the Covid pandemic and boost social care.

He described the plan, which includes capping care costs in England at £86,000, as “reasonable and fair”.

But some critics have said the money raised will not be enough.
