Fiona Mactaggart

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the implications of the conviction of owners and staff of Longcare Homes for abuse and ill treatment of residents for the future regulation of such homes; and if he will make a statement. [1728]

Mr. Boateng

We are committed to securing quality services by creating a more comprehensive, more independent regulatory framework for homes and other social services which has the interests of users at heart. We will bring forward our proposals for achieving this in due course.
