§ Mr. Tredinnick
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has to establish an alternative health register; and when. 
§ 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.
