Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."

I want to ask one question. The Clause says:

"This Act shall not extend to Scotland…"
We know that Lord Alness's Committee reported against the use of the term "assistant nurse." Will not this make for confusion, and the result that Scotswomen as well as Scotsmen will all be flooding down upon us?

I must leave that to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland.

Question, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill," put, and agreed to.
