No such thing as a free lunch – or is there?

BBC News is reporting that Stirling Council may stop charging the elderly for food preparation services. Only eight Councils in Scotland currently charge for the service, and some local authorities have begun paying back people charged for the service.

Scottish ministers plan to introduce new laws on food preparation, as previous guidance “lacked clarity”. However, until new legislation is in force, local authorities have been left to interpret the existing legislation on their own – leading to discrepancies between different areas.

A Scottish Government spokesperson is quoted as saying: “We will work with Scottish councils to ensure the intention and wording of the revised legislation is clear and the charging issue put beyond any doubt once and for all.”
