I beg to move, in page 9, line 18, after "diplomas," to insert:

"and at least two of the members who are elected members of the Council."
This Amendment is to meet a point raised in Committee by my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent, Central (Dr. Stross), to ensure that, among the nine members who will normally be invited to attend the Medical Disciplinary Committee, there will be at least two elected members of the Council.

We on this side of the House are grateful to the Government for having put down this Amendment. We had a similar Amendment asking for an alteration of this kind, and this Amendment gives effect to what we were asking for.

Amendment agreed to.
