[MR. ROBERT RHODES JAMES in the Chair]

Draft United Kingdom Central Council for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting (Electoral Scheme) (Variation) Order 1988

10.30 am

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Security (Mrs Edwina Currie): I beg to move, "That the Committee has considered the draft United Kingdom Central Council for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting (Electoral Scheme) (Variation) Order 1988." 4 I apologise to the Committee for the fact that the order requires the following corrections, which I gather have not been made in all the copies of the order that have been distributed. Perhaps I may put them on the record. On page 4, paragraph 1 (8) should be deleted and sub-paragraphs (9) and (10) renumbered (8) and (9) respectively. On page 11, in the explanatory note, in line 6 of the second paragraph the comma should be deleted after "(paragraph 7)"; and in line 7 a full stop should be inserted after "(paragraph 9)" and the rest of the sentence should be deleted. With those corrections I hope that the Committee will approve the draft order.

Question put and agreed to.

Resolved, That the Committee has considered the draft United Kingdom Central Council for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting (Electoral Scheme) (Variation) Order 1988.

Committee rose at twenty-nine minutes to Eleven o'clock.
