To pay for the NHS and social care, we cannot simply borrow this money because we already have the highest deficit since the Second World War, having spent £407 billion to get the country through the pandemic. We had a manifesto commitment to reform social care and to run sustainable public finances as well. It is important to note that the richest 14% of the population are paying half the cost of the levy and someone working full time on minimum wage will pay £1.50 a week. Moreover, half the cost of social care is spent on working age adults. Our previous changes to the National Living Wage income tax and National Insurance means someone working full time on minimum wage is now currently £5,400 better off in real terms than in 2010.
