HC Deb 14 July 1926 vol 198 c586

Lords Amendment: In page 1, line 19, at the end insert: Provided that the provisions of this Sub-section shall not apply in the case of a person who, while undergoing training with a view to becoming a duly qualified medical practitioner or a certified midwife, attends a woman in childbirth as part of a course of practical instruction in midwifery recognised by the General Medical Council or by the Central Midwives Board.

Lieut.-Colonel FREMANTLE

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This has been put in as necessary to safeguard the work of medical students under tuition. Although they are not qualified men, they are doing useful work under proper safeguards in training schools. Therefore this Amendment was put in to allow them to continue, although unqualified persons.
