Mr Lansley set out the agreements and disagreements on the issue between the main political parties following a meeting with health secretary Andy Burnham and shadow Liberal Democrat health secretary Norman Lamb.
Mr Lansley said: ‘There were two key disagreements: whether disability benefits should be cut to pay for the national care service and whether it should be funded through compulsory or voluntary payments from individuals.
‘I made clear in our conversations I could not and would not accept a compulsory levy on every person to pay for a national care service, which appears to be Labour's favoured option. That is why I acknowledged that there were differing views on the issue.
‘In the interest of transparency I call on Andy Burnham to publish his statement as well.'
Mr Burnham has called a cross-party conference on the issue after earlier talks broke down. Mr Lansley has refused to attend until Labour's ‘£20,000 death tax plan' has been ruled out.
