HC Deb 08 February 1988 vol 127 c98W
Mrs. Gorman

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) if he will list the residential care homes for the elderly run by local authorities in which cases of neglect and cruelty towards residents have resulted in disciplinary action or criminal prosecution against members of staff; and if he will make a statement;

(2) if he will list those members of staff of municipal residential care homes for the elderly and handicapped who have been disciplined or prosecuted for neglect or cruelty towards residents.

Mrs. Currie

Disciplinary proceedings against local authority staff are a matter for the local authority concerned, while prosecutions are for the police and the Director of Public Prosecutions and the information requested is not recorded centrally.
