Social care backlash grows after MPs vote through tax plan

The Guardian says Boris Johnson has won the backing of MPs for his controversial health and social care plan, amid a growing backlash from experts and professionals who warned it will fail to fix the urgent crisis in the care system.

Despite the concerns of some Conservative MPs about breaching their manifesto commitment not to increase national insurance contributions (NICs), a motion approving the £12bn a year package passed by 319 votes to 248 on Wednesday evening, a majority of 71.

But after care sector leaders had more time to scrutinise the plans, they said they had become increasingly concerned about the meagre resources set out in the proposals – while Labour warned some patients could still end up having to sell their homes in order to pay for their care.
