§ Mr. Burstow
To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he expects to publish his response to the report of the Centre for Policy on Ageing on national required standards for residential and nursing homes for older people. 
§ Mr. Hutton
We are currently considering the Centre for Policy on Ageing's report setting out their proposals for national regulatory standards for older people in care homes. We will be issuing the CPA's proposed standards to a wide range of organisations and individuals for consultation nationally in the summer.
We will carefully consider all the comments we receive on the CPA's report before finalising and publishing the standards and the arrangements for implementing them.
