EDM calls on Government to make early statement re: carers

EDM 128  Carers

Hepburn, Stephen

That this House calls on the Government to make an early statement on its policy intentions toward carers; notes the selfless hard work and commitment displayed by the approximately six million carers in the UK; recognises the incalculable difference carers make to the lives of their loved ones; acknowledges that carers save the country an estimated £87 billion each year; and supports an immediate review of the current carers allowance level.

Carer Watch would like  your help in raising awareness of this EDM .Please contact your own MP asking for their support of the above.
