Hartlepool BC plans to transfer five care homes out of its control to a non profit-making trust, reported the Northern Echo (10 Jan, p3).

A 10,000 signature petition opposing the plan has been presented but councillors say there is misinterpretation of what the council wants to do.

Council leader Bryan Hanson told care staff: 'It seems we have got into a situation where there is so much confusion and misinterpretation. We are not going to sell the homes to private companies. That is out of the question.'
