My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Wells-Pestell, I beg to introduce a Bill to make provision for the constitution of the General Medical Council, for changes to be made in the Medical Acts in the event of the termination of the Agreement of 1927 with the Irish Free State with respect to the registration and control of medical practitioners, for new committees of the General Medical Council to be established to exercise functions with respect to medical education and the professional conduct and fitness to practise of medical practitioners, for the correction of erroneous registrations, and for purposes connected with those matters. I beg to move that this Bill be now read a first time.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 1a .—( Lord Strabolgi.)
