Cosla is pleased that the progress made at today's meeting with health minister Malcolm Chisholm gives a firm proposal for discussions with council leaders next week.

Cosla's social services and health improvement spokesperson Ronnie McColl said: 'The discussions that the Cosla delegation held this morning with Malcolm Chisholm and his deputy Hugh Henry were positive, and progress, which allows us to put something definite to the leaders of Scotland's local authorities next week, was made.

'Cosla has no argument over the level of fees in the review group report and still wants to come to an agreement as quickly as possible.

'As always our main concern in all of this is Scotland's frail and vulnerable elderly community and we remain totally focussed on finding a sensible long term funding solution which takes care of their interests.'
