Thalidomide Fund recieves £80 million

The Thalidomide Fund will recieve a grant of £80 milllion over the next ten years, Health Minister Norman Lamb announced in the House of Commons.<br /><br />

The moves comes as a three year pilot scheme introduced by Labour expires in the new year.   


The three major parties clashed angrily on social care in a TV debate; Health Secretary Andy Burnham has called for an all-party conference to discuss how to fund social care.


Nick Clegg and David Cameron have allowed for Liberal Democrat and Conservative MPs to work together on a joint policy prospectus for the coalition in the second half of this parliament.


Lib Dems 'willing' to talk to Labour

Labour and the Liberal Democrats can have a "civilised dialogue" to seek common ground in this Parliament, according to Nick Clegg's parliamentary aide Norman Lamb. He said Labour's reaction to the forming of the Coalition had been largely "hysterical", but that as "plural politicians we should be willing to talk to Labour as early as the next election about working together in government".


The government plans a compulsory levy to create a universal system of social care for adults in England, health secretary Andy Burnham confirmed yesterday. Shadow health secretary Andrew Lansley dismissed Labour's plans as a "train crash".


The Liberal Democrats would not support the key Conservative health policy of an independent board to run the NHS in the event of a hung parliament, party health spokesman Norman Lamb said yesterday.
