Care Services Minister Norman Lamb has pledged to do "everything I can" to end the kind of "utterly intolerable" ill treatment and neglect exposed at Winterbourne View.
Addressing an urgent question on the Coalition's actions following the abuse at the private hospital, he said he would deliver a "robust and clear" final response for the Government by the end of November.
Speaking in the Commons, he described it as a "national scandal and it has to end."
"I will do everything I can to end this scandal and ensure we have proper safeguarding arrangements in place," Mr Lamb said.
