The press release from the SNP is absolutely scandalous and just scaremongering, you can see they are lining up their spin for the forthcoming General election and trying to put fear into the most vulnerable in our society. The truth is that Falkirk Council has not set any new charges for home care!
I have to make clear that no options for charging will be considered by Members until a full consultation has taken place & to suggest otherwise is completely irresponsible. The figures quoted have no foundation whatsoever and I can reassure people that any proposals brought forward will be based on views gathered during the consultation process and not on fictitious spin from an extremely poor opposition who would rather scaremonger.
