Report (6th Day)
Health and Social Care Bill
Lord Turnberg (Labour)
My Lords, I am well aware of the lengths to which the Government have gone to support education and training, for which I am truly grateful. I am also aware that earlier amendments might appear to have covered the points that I raised about the need for foundation trusts: there is a particular recommendation for them. I am a little disappointed that my amendment cannot be accepted but I understand the reasoning. The foundation trusts are key providers and, therefore, it should be clear to them that they have this responsibility. I know that they are willing providers of education and training but it should be in the Bill. However, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.
Amendment 219 withdrawn.
Amendment 220 not moved.
Moved by Lord Hunt of Kings Heath
220A: Clause 163, page 159, leave out lines 36 to 40
