Volume 507: debated on Monday 15 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what timetable has been set for the appointment of a new Chair of the Care Quality Commission. (322235)

The recruitment process is under way, in line with the procedures set out in the Commissioner for Public Appointments’ guidance for such appointments.

The appointment is subject to a pre-appointment hearing by the Health Select Committee. It is, therefore, likely that the timing of the general election may affect the timetable for the appointment.
