May pledges to tackle 'giant challenges' with Tory manifesto

People will be also expected to put the value of their property towards home care costs for the first time, with the state stepping in to pay when someone has less than £100,000 in assets.

The Tory party statement to media said it would "take immediate action to deal with the pressures in the social care system", although dates have not been given.

CONSERVATIVE plans for social care have come under fire from the author of a major review of the issue, who warned elderly people would be left "helpless" to control the cost of their care.

The Tory manifesto said the party would remove the triple lock protection - which guarantees annual increases at the higher of 2.5%, average earnings, or the consumer prices index (CPI) - in 2020 and replace it with a double lock based on earnings and inflation only.

The plan abandons the recommendation of the 2011 Dilnot commission, previously supported by the Conservatives but not yet introduced, of capping the total of what any individual must pay for their long-term social care.

Darren Redmayne, chief executive of Lincoln Pensions, said it was a courageous decision to water down the policy alongside changes to social care contributions and winter fuel payment cuts.

More elderly people in the United Kingdom will have to pay for their own social care in the home and lose universal benefits under a new Conservative policy which, Prime Minister Theresa May will say on Thursday, is hard but necessary to tackle the crisis in funding.

"It is crucial that those starting their savings journey understand what the right level of risk is for them early on, so that markets can do much of the heavy lifting over the next 40 years and deliver them the pension they need for the lifestyle they want to have in retirement".

"If enacted, it is likely to represent the biggest stealth tax in history and when people understand that they will be leaving most of their estate to the government, rather than their families, the Conservative Party will experience a dramatic loss of support".

The money saved by means-testing the winter fuel payment will go directly to fund health and social care.

By getting rid of the scheme, the Tory manifesto claims that English schools will receive a £4 billion injection.

"It is clear the Conservatives are offering more of the same, tax giveaways for their billionaire friends and nothing for ordinary people".

Unveiling the document in the Tory target seat of Halifax, West Yorkshire - close to the venue for Jeremy Corbyn's manifesto launch in Bradford two days before - Mrs May said Britain was facing the most challenging period in the past 60 years. Later this year the Care Quality Commission is due to carry out inspections focused on this in 20 areas.

Now the companies pay some $1,304 for every non-EU skilled migrant worker per year, while the Conservative Party seeks to double the charges. But they broke their promise, letting older and vulnerable people down. We abhor social division, injustice, unfairness and inequality.

He said: "Whether this will have the effect of stopping another BHS, or simply add cost and delay to legitimate commercial transactions, may depend on the approach TPR takes in practice".

"There is no Mayism, I know you journalists like to write about it", she said. It is not a tax and Labour's proposal was actually to increase inheritance tax by 10% to pay for a national care service, and we are not doing that.
