Good to hear at least one Lincolnshire MP speaking up for vulnerable elderly people.
This from BBC Radio Lincolnshire:
Newsreader: The MP for Lincoln, Gillian Merron, is urging Lincolnshire County Council to think again over controversial increases in homecare costs.
Gillian Merron: My priorities would be about serving people and it would be about serving the most vulnerable in our society. And of course you have to have a balance and of course you have to balance the books. There’s no doubt about that. But let’s also remember that the County Council has had an above-inflation increase in funding from the Labour Government since we came in in ’97.
