Care Minister comments

Care Minister Helen Whately has admitted that putting into effect the cap on social care costs is "a little way off" but said it is a "big reform that will take time to implement".

These comments were made prior to a reshuffle in which Gillian Keegan was appointed the new Minister of State for Care and Mental Health at the Department of Health and Social Care.

The Chichester MP said, "I am honoured to have been asked by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to join the Department of Health and Social Care. There are significant challenges ahead and I am looking forward to working closely with Sajid Javid and the team."
