HC Deb 13 February 1996 vol 271 c554W
17. Mr. Gunnell

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what monitoring he has undertaken of community care provision. [13320]

Mr. Bowis

We monitor community care on a regular basis. This includes work by the social services inspectorate, the regular collection and publication of statistics and longer-term research to evaluate progress.

There is clear evidence both from our own monitoring and from independent reports that community care is a success.
