David Behan on the draft Bill – video

In this video David Behan makes the following points:

  • Alongside the white paper, we have published the draft Care and Support Bill
  • The Bill gives the legal means to deliver the policy ambitions set out in the white paper
  • Current legislation is outdated and often confusing for those who need to use it
  • The draft bill represents the most comprehensive review of adult social care law over the last 60 years
  • A single consolidated piece of legislation replaces more than 12 separate pieces of legislation
  • What happens next:
    • the draft Bill is published for consultation and we would welcome feedback
    • the Bill will go through pre-legislative scrutiny
    • the Bill will pass through parliament until it becomes an Act
