To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of whether the hedge fund the H2 is a fit and proper owner of the largest care home public group in the UK.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has advised the Department that the CQC does not assess whether owners of health and care providers are fit and proper and therefore they do not have a view on the appropriateness of H2. However, the CQC is making changes to their Registration function that in future should improve transparency of such ownership arrangements for the public.
