The hon. Gentleman has not answered my first intervention yet. [ Interruption. ] If Mr MacNeil would just face the front and fold his arms, the world would be a better place. Pete Wishart argued that people are trained differently in Scotland and should therefore be regulated separately. Health care professionals such as doctors and nurses come from other countries where they have been trained differently, but we still regulate them in the same way when they practise in this country. His argument is therefore specious.
