Clause 17—(Interpretation)

Volume 388: debated on Wednesday 7 April 1943

I beg to move, in page 11, line 15, to leave out from "children" to the end of the line.

This Amendment is for the purpose of preventing confusion. Under the Bill as it stands, providing that a trained nurse was nursing in sickness as well as in health, she would be entitled to the description of nurse, but a nanny who looks after children is entitled to use the term "children's nurse," and these is no need for the words:
"in health as well as in sickness."

This would make it clear that "children's nurse" means a person whose avocation is that of caring for children, and that meets the point.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, order to stand part of the Bill.
