Extract from BBC Radio Lincolnshire:
Presenter: David Kay who used to be the Mayor of Louth now has advanced Parkinson’s and pays £41 a week for homecare. He’s been told by the Council his bill is set to rise to £120 a week as part of a controversial Fairer Charging policy. Derbyshire County Council charges nothing for homecare but Mr Kay says he’s not surprised Lincolnshire has taken a different route:
David Kay: Lincolnshire has always been rather behind the times on this sort of thing. The same came with bus passes and so on. It was way behind Derbyshire and South Yorkshire and other areas. Always been rather backward looking in this point of view when it comes to allowances for people.
I couldn't have put it better myself!
