HC Deb 10 June 2002 vol 386 c881W
Annabelle Ewing

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans her Department has to regulate counselling, psychotherapy and clinical psychology services provided in Scotland. [59899]

Mrs. McGuire

There are no such plans at present. The Health Professions Council, established on 1 April 2002, can propose the extension of its remit to health professions which are not currently regulated. Under the Health Act 1999, any orders to implement such a proposal would have to be approved by the UK and Scottish Parliaments.
