PM could face Tory rebellion over plan for social care charges

Economics Correspondent

The government is under mounting pressure after senior Conservatives hit out at a change to the new plans for social care.

The prime minister faces opposition in the Commons as early as Tuesday by a number of MPs, many of whom represent areas in the north where typical property values are lower.
