Birmingham CC has given itself four years to bring its care homes for children, the elderly and the disabled 'up to scratch' after a report revealed many buildings were in a poor state of repair, The Birmingham Post reports (p7).

The report, based on council inspections of 330 homes over the past year, showed standards were improving compared to 1992/93 year but a third of the councils homes for the elderly alone did not meet government standards.

Conservative councillors on the Labour-run authority said the report showed council tenants were getting a 'second rate service'.
