HL Deb 24 July 1990 vol 521 c1431WA
Lord Carter

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their estimate of the cost of special income support payments to people in private or voluntary residential and nursing homes between April 1991 and April 1993.

Lord Henley

The Public Expenditure White Paper (Cmnd. 1014) contains the present planning totals for social security expenditure. It has never been the practice to publish separate forecasts about expenditure specifically on people in residential care and nursing homes.
