My Rt. hon. Friend, the Secretary of State, is aware of the findings of the Learning Disabilities Mortality Review Annual Report 2017.

The Government is committed to learning from every avoidable death and the Department has been working with its partners to see how the report’s recommendations may be implemented to support improvements to services and to the quality of care that people with a learning disability receive.

In my Oral Statement on 8 May, Official Report Column 554, I committed to respond to each of the report’s recommendations and will report back to Parliament shortly.
