An Age UK and ILC-UK debate
Thursday 26th November 2015, 08:30 (for a 09:00 start) – 10:30
Committee Room G, House of Lords, London, SW1A 0PW
The Spending Review, due to be published on 25th November 2015 will set out the Governments plans to deliver additional departmental savings with a view to eliminating Britain’s deficit by 2019-2020.
Government Departments have been asked to model the impact of real term spending cuts of between 25% and 40%. At the same time some Departments have already been given an assurance that their spending will be protected. The Government has committed to invest in both the NHS and defence whilst also continuing to protect spending on education and foreign aid.
Because of the scale of cuts planned and the fact that some Departmental spending is protected, other Departments may face significant funding cuts.
This event will take place the morning after the Spending Review has been announced. Participants will be asked to consider:
- How will the spending review impact on the future provision of adult social care?
- How has long term funding for later life been impacted by the spending review?
- Following the spending review, what are the priorities for policy action for the next year?
Limited space is available at this debate.
