Asked whether he is certain there is not an "ongoing cover-up" at the CQC, Jeremy Hunt replied that he has full confidence in the new leadership of the health regulator.

Moors murderer Ian Brady remains "chronically psychotic" and should remain in a hospital setting for treatment, his mental health tribunal was told today.
The child killer suffers from long-term paranoid schizophrenia which does not "just fade away and die", according to the clinician in charge of his care at high security Ashworth Hospital in Merseyside.
Brady, 75, was constantly paranoid about the Home Office and the Prison Officers Association, and believed hospital staff were acting as their agents, a panel sitting at the hospital was told.
Giving evidence, Dr James Collins said Brady also had paranoid beliefs about fellow patients who he thought were spying on him.

Here's ITV weather presenter Becky Mantin with the latest forecast:
Ofcom said it has opened an investigation into Sky's "alleged abuse of a dominant position" regarding the wholesale supply of Sky Sports 1 and 2 - its flagship sports channels.
BT wants to offer Sky Sports via YouView set-top boxes to complement its own newly-launched sport offer.
But BT said Sky will not allow the channels to be broadcast over BT boxes unless it offers its rival wholesale access to its own BT Sport channels in return.
Ofcom said it will "consider whether Sky has abused a dominant position under UK and/or EU competition law".
The regulator added it will decide by next month whether to grant "interim relief" - which could temporarily give BT access to Sky Sports.
