Improving care at home for elderly

I refer to your extensive coverage of the RTE 'Prime Time' programme last December on the lack of regulation in the home-care sector.

At that time all political parties were rushing to the media with their thoughts on the lack of regulation in the sector.

Now that we are in the midst of a general election campaign, could those same political parties give a commitment to the older people of Ireland that they would introduce national home-care standards if elected to government?
