HC Deb 10 January 2000 vol 342 c117

10 pm

Mr. Derek Wyatt (Sittingbourne and Sheppey)

I wish to present a petition on behalf of Mrs. Irene Stack and Mr. Simon Dolby and other members of my constituency.

The petition declares: The current levels of protections for the elderly from untrained or unsuitable care workers are inadequate. The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to introduce:

  1. 1) A national register for professional carers to protect the elderly.
  2. 2) A minimum time ban for nurses struck off the register held by the UK Central Council for Nurses and Midwives.
And the petitioners remain, etc. The petition was signed by 2,000 people in my constituency.

To lie upon the Table.
