§ Mr. Gordon Prentice
To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he expects to conclude his review of long-term care; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Hutton
The Royal Commission on Long Term Care was asked to examine the options for funding long-term care, including residential care for elderly people. We are carefully considering the Royal Commission's proposals, the divergences of view within the Royal Commission and the comments that have been made by various organisations and individuals. We will make an announcement in due course.
