    Boris Johnson sets out his plan for ‘unleashing our nation’s full potential’ as the UK emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

    ‘We have been given an historic opportunity to change things for the better, level up opportunities across the whole of the United Kingdom, and address the problems that have constrained us far too often before,’ he said.

    Proposals on social care will be ‘brought forward’, but there is no specific bill mentioned to tackle an issue that has bedevilled successive governments.
