The Government are to announce their latest plans on Monday, as PM David Cameron and Deputy Nick Clegg reach half way through their term in office. The mid-term review document has been handed to officials, and it is expected to show that the Coalition governmentis ‘united’.
The review supposedly mentions plans that relate to older members of the population, with there being a focus on elderly care costs as well as pensions. Also, there are other plans expected to be announced, including those relating to childcare costs.
Mr. Cameron and Mr. Clegg wrote in a foreword to the review: “We are dealing with the deficit, rebuilding the economy, reforming welfare and education and supporting hard-working families through tough times. And on all of these key aims, our parties, after 32 months of coalition, remain steadfast and united.”
They added: “Of course there have been some issues on which we have not seen eye to eye, and no doubt there will be more. That is the nature of coalition”
With the current government looking back at whether they have met their proposed aims so far, the Coalition are also considering their plans and promises for the future.
Based on reports, they are expected to say they will “provide dignity in old age”.
The PM and Deputy PM wrote: “We will set out two big reforms to provide dignity in old age: an improved state pension that rewards saving, and more help with the costs of long-term care.”
Aside from this, among other areas the Coalition is expected to announce support for working parents who have children.
The Government may also look towards building more houses in the future, as well as assisting those people who want to own a house but are finding it hard to step onto the property ladder.
