Social Services: Standards

Volume 489: debated on Thursday 19 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the implications of the Laming Report for his Department’s procedures for handling adult social care serious case reviews; and if he will make a statement. (264345)

The Department is carefully considering the Laming Report in relation to adult safeguarding. The review of ‘No Secrets’ is currently analysing the responses to the recent public consultation, which includes responses to specific questions about serious case reviews. The publication of the Laming Report is therefore timely, as the Government are now considering their recommendations as part of the broader review of adult safeguarding.
