Cross party talks on social care reform to begin this week

Cross-party talks about overhauling care and support for the elderly and disabled in England will begin this week with campaigners urging politicians to consider major change.

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley and his Lib Dem care services minister Paul Burstow will sit down with two members of the Labour health team on Tuesday.

Similar talks broke down acrimoniously before the 2010 election.

The charity Age UK said the opportunity could not be lost again.
