ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Welsh assembly government has rejected its manifesto pledge of free home care for disabled people because it claims it cannot afford to pay for the policy. Disability campaigners and opposition politicians have condemned the move. In place of the 2003 Labour manifesto pledge, health and social services minister Brian Gibbons unveiled a package of support for older people, disabled people and caregivers.
