Valuing and supporting carers: government response to the committee's fourth report of session 2007-08: first special report of session 2008-09

The Committee welcomes the Government's plans to replace the current system of benefits for carers with one that will differentiate between the support a carer needs because they have no income, and the support they need because of other costs relating to caring responsibilities. However the lack of a timetable for the reforms is a major concern in times of increasing economic uncertainty.
