HC Deb 27 April 1965 vol 711 cc323-4
Mrs. Hart

I beg to move in page 9, line 40, at the end to insert: approved school" means a school approved under section 83 of the Children and Young Persons (Scotland) Act 1937. I wonder if I might move this Amendment briefly. We did not have it in mind that we should consider this matter of definitions in Amendment No. 23. Perhaps it would be for the convenience of the Committee to consider at the same time Amendment No. 25 and Amendment No. 24. They both concern definitions in pages 9, 10 and 12 and are intended to make more precise the definition, for example, of "teach" and "teaching" and of the institutions in which such teaching is carried out.

Amendment No. 23 defines what an approved school is to be in terms of the 1937 Children and Young Persons (Scotland) Act. Amendment No. 24 has already been discussed. The third Amendment would carry out the final transfer of the definitions in relation to the Acts of 1962 and 1937.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 10, line 3, at end insert: teach" means teach in an educational establishment (as defined in section 145 of the Act of 1962) or in an approved school, and "teaching" and "teacher" shall be construed accordingly.—[Mrs. Hart.]
