HC Deb 20 May 1998 vol 312 c429W
Mr. Tredinnick

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has to establish an alternative health register; and when. [27360]

Ms Jowell

The statutory register for osteopaths, established under the Osteopaths Act 1993, opened on 9 May. Arrangements for the opening of the statutory register for chiropractors, to be established under the Chiropractors Act 1994, are in preparation, but we are not yet in a position to say when it will open.

We have no plans to regulate by statute other complementary therapy groups, some of which maintain, on a voluntary basis, a register of their membership.

Forward to
