HL Deb 20 December 2004 vol 667 c131WA
Lord Laming

asked Her Majesty's Government:

In light of the recent report by the Commission for Social Care Inspection, what action they are taking to ensure that the London Borough of Ealing addresses the needs of vulnerable children and adults in that area. [HL386]

Lord Warner

We understand from the Chair of the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) that Ealing Council must submit to it by 10 January 2005 a performance improvement plan. CSCI will evaluate whether it will deliver the improvements needed. The commission will monitor Ealing's performance against this plan monthly.

Following the commission's evaluation of Ealing's performance improvement plan, the commission will write in January 2005 to the Secretary of State for Health recommending any special measures, which it considers we should take.
