I beg to move Amendment No. 18, in page 61, line 10, leave out 'Regional Hospital' and insert 'Health Board'.
I suggest that it will be for the convenience of the Committee to take at the same time Amendment No. 19 to Clause 178. No. 42 to Clause 377 and No. 43 to Clause 379.
This group of amendments takes account of the fact that, under the reorganisation of the health service in Scotland, regional hospital boards have been replaced by health boards with effect from 1st April 1974. This change was effected by a commencement order under the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1972.
Amendment agreed to.
Clause 176, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
Clause 177 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
