HC Deb 26 October 1993 vol 230 c601W
19. Mr. Illsley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what representations she has received from representatives of residential care homes regarding assessments by local authorities.

Mr. Bowis

I have regular meetings with care home representatives at which we discuss various issues including local authority assessments.

Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make it her policy to monitor the effect of the deregistration of residential care homes for vulnerable people upon service provision to their inhabitants.

Mr. Bowis

I am aware of a few homes in the drug and alcohol field which have been deregistered. These services have been and are continuing to be monitored by Goldsmith's college, whose first report was published on 28 July and a copy of which is available in the Library.
