Report: £35k elderly care cap plans revived

Tomorrow's Independent is reporting that the Government has revived plans to limit the individual costs of elderly care to £35,000.

It claims it will formally announce the policy in the Care and Support Bill in the autumn as part of the relaunch of the Coalition.

This is despite the Health Secretary Andrew Lansley shelving the recommendations from the Dilnot report last month because of the cost of implementing the cap.
