asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will order an inquiry into the running of the Nye Bevan lodge house in Southwark.

[pursuant to his reply, 16 May 1985. c. 222]: We are concerned about Nye Bevan lodge and certain other residential homes run by Southwark and I have written to the chairman of the borough's social services committee suggesting that the Department's social services inspectorate carry out a short programme of inspections of its residential homes. The purpose of this programme would be to re-establish confidence in the council's administration of these homes. This would be in addition to the inquiries which the council is itself conducting.
