HL Deb 04 December 1989 vol 513 c729

Lord Rugby asked Her Majesty's Government:

What proposals they have for reducing the size of the General Optical Council and its committees now that regulation of opticians is increasingly within the power of Ministers under recent legislation.

Baroness Hooper

We have no current plans to amend the terms of the Opticians Act 1958 to alter the constitution or duties of the General Optical Council.
