He says that he doesn't know how many people will take up the right to have an unpaid year off work to look after a dependant who needs care
I know.
It will be everyone who can afford to spend a year without an income. Approximately ... no-one.
This is a Tory "policy" that will cost nothing. And achieve nothing.

I am not a Tory voter (so not sticking up for them in anyway) but having the option there where you will be able to go back to your current job is better than nothing.
I certainly cannot afford to do it (at the moment anyway, who knows about the future) but I do know people who could. Many older people have got the income/equity to support the person financially - ie, a grandparent who bought a house for a low price and is now worth more, could, sell their house to live with the person caring for them.
I haven't looked into the new potential policy though so I am say the above quite blindly.

The best way to help people who have to care for family members who are ill or disabled would be to increase carer's allowance to a decent level, so that they could afford to take a year off work.

Having had personal experience of being a sole carer, I would ask for more and better joined up health and social care support - but thanks to the selfservatives it's got even worse
