Last night the government passed its social care bill, despite 19 Conservative MPs rebelling against the government. 

The government's bill was supported by 272 votes against 246 and the bill includes plans which would stop council support payments from counting towards the new £86,000 cap on lifetime care costs. 

How did your MP vote in the social care bill? 

The Stroud MP Siobhan Baillie abstained in the social care bill. 

Thornbury & Yate MP Luke Hall, Cotswolds MP Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown and North Wiltshire MP James Gray all voted in favour of last night's bill. 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has defended this 'incredibly generous' social care reform plan. 

But the Labour Party claim that this scheme is 'Robin Hood in reverse.'

The cap on personal care costs will place a limit on the costs that people will need to spend to meet their eligible care and support needs.

The term ‘personal care costs’ refers only to the components of any care package considered to be related to personal care, not hotel and accommodation costs. 

From October 2023 the cap will be set at £86,000. This means the maximum amount anyone will have to pay for personal care to meet their eligible care and support needs from October 2023 onwards will be £86,000. The cap will be implemented for adults of all ages, without exemption.
