|Health and Social Care Bill
Dr. Fox: We feel that this is another part of the Bill that is far too widely drawn. When the Minister says that the Government need to consult widely about the use of that power, that only reinforces our impression that it has not been properly thought through, and is yet another part of the ``make it up as you go along'' legislation. The clause potentially leaves doctors in an impossible position, and some patients in an entirely unacceptable position, so we intend to divide the Committee.
Question put, That the amendment be made:
The Committee divided: Ayes 7, Noes 10.
Division No. 10]
Amendment made: No. 337, in page 51, line 47, leave out
(ii) (where it relates to more than one person) to the person to whom it principally relates, or

It being twenty-five minutes past Eleven o'clock, The Chairman adjourned the Committee without Question put, pursuant to the Standing Order.
