HC Deb 24 November 1994 vol 250 cc253-4W
Mr. Mallon

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans he has to introduce a grading system to establish the quality of facilities and services in private nursing homes.

Mr. Moss

None. I am satisfied with the present arrangements under which the registration and inspection units of the four health and social services boards are responsible for setting and inspecting the standards of facilities and services provided in all residential care and nursing homes.
