I will be extraordinarily brief as this is my final flourish on part 2 as we romp through it and into part 3. The clause is about the education and training of approved mental health professionals. I shall do no more than say that the emphasis that we put on training is equal to that on all other aspects of the Bill. I think that that reinforces the Minister’s approach. We have not lost sight of the fact that the Bill is intended to be not just regulatory, but positive in giving support to those concerned.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 116 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 117 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Schedule 10 agreed to.
