§ LORD MORRISON
My Lords, the new subsection (6) makes it clear that hospitals which are now exempted from the child life protection provisions will remain exempted after they have been vested in the Minister of Health on July 5, 1948. I beg to move that this House 106 do agree with the Commons in this Amendment.
§ Moved, that this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(Lord Morrison.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
