The former health secretary said Conservative MPs like me were not happy with the changes. It’s more that [the the government] will help fewer people than we originally thought to protect their assets, Mr Hunt told BBC Radio 4s Today program.

It comes after Boris Johnson saw his majority of 80 seats reduced in the House of Commons when MPs approved the controversial changes by 272-246, a majority of just 26.

The real crisis in care is the lack of funding for the board, warns Hunt

The real crisis in social services, a chronic shortage of funding and staff, is being ignored as controversy rages over diluting promises to cap lifetime costs, said Jeremy Hunt.

The former health secretary warned that the government must act, even if it is about to reject its candidacy for independent experts to assess the number of staff needed because it would be too expensive, reports our deputy political editor. Rob merrick.

Were going a bit of a diversion. There is a crisis in social services and it’s not really about how we calculate eligibility for the cap, but the funding that local authorities receive, he told BBC Radio 4 earlier.

Johnsons CBI speech not a big moment, Tory MP admits

A little more of Jeremy Hunt now. The senior conservative said Boris Johnson CBI’s speech was not a big moment for the PM and agreed there were things we can do better.

But he said the rumors about Mr Johnson did not compare to the criticisms of David Cameron or Theresa May.

Speaking on Times Radio, Mr Hunt said: It was not a big time and it was not a big month for the government.

I’m sure there are things we can do better. But I was a cabinet member for nine years from 2010 and frankly there was never a time when there was no noise in Westminster, there weren’t any backers. -ban complaining about the way the government works.

Cameron and George Osborne have been the subject of complaints about their management of the economy, while Ms May clashed with her ministers and MPs over Brexit in a suspended parliament.

Even though the past month hasn’t been good for the government, I don’t think the noises we’re getting now compare to … some of the ones we’ve had before, he said.

Here he says much the same to Sky News:

Conflict and disappointment: Hunt defends abstaining from voting

Earlier, talking to BBC breakfastHealth Select Committee Chairman Jeremy Hunt said he abstained in Monday night’s critical vote because he conflicted with the government’s approach.

He said: I was in conflict, I ended up abstaining because it is a big disappointment that they changed the way the cap is calculated.

But it is still a step forward.

Not including board support to calculate whether the care cost cap has been reached means it won’t protect assets for as many people as we had hoped, he said.

Let us not forget that the poorest people will receive more help, sooner, than they are currently receiving.

Hunt will push the government today to release independently verified assessments of the current and future health and social services workforce every two years, as MPs continue to scrutinize the health and care bill .

Hunt admits not happy with changes in social services but thinks Tories are fine

Hunt, speaking to the BBC Nick Robinson, is quickly asked about his reasons for refusing to participate in last night’s vote.

If you thought [the changes] were progressive enough, you would have voted for them, right? Robinson tells him frankly.

Amid a rambling response, Hunt makes it clear that yes, but that he was not happy with the change made last week.

However, pressured to explain why the Prime Minister reneged on his promise to protect the public good and ensure families don’t have to sell their homes, Hunt says it’s not entirely accurate to saying that people will have to sell their homes… is more than helping fewer people than we originally thought to protect their assets.

He adds that people like me were not very happy with the changes and that it makes the health and care bill harder to pack in the country.

Speaking more broadly about the past few weeks in parliament, Hunt says the past month has not been a good month for the government. But, he insists that what will count in the next election is if the party helps ordinary people with everyday problems.

Robinson steps in to ask if he thinks it does – pointing to welfare and rail problems in the North as indicators that it isn’t.

Hunt replies that the UK’s booster jab program is the best in Europe and gives people confidence in government. There are things that make a real difference, he says.
