HC Deb 10 March 1993 vol 220 c614W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans she has to require local authority homes caring for the aged to meet the same registration standards as those met by the voluntary and private sector.

Mr. Yeo

All residential care homes, including those run by local authorities, are inspected regularly by reference to common inspection standards and criteria. We expect authorities to act on inspection reports which identify shortcomings in their own care homes.
