With this it will be convenient to discuss Government amendments 346 and 347.

These amendments to section 276 and schedule 17 of the 2006 Act are consequential provisions in clause 192. The clause replaces sections 146, 149 and 150 of the 2006 Act with two new sections that enable the NHS commissioning board to make regulations that make provision for the preparation, maintenance and publication of lists of performers of pharmaceutical services.

Amendment 345 makes a minor alteration to the wording of new section 147B so that it reads “under” rather than “by virtue of”. Amendment 346 removes from the index of defined expressions in section 276 the words “supplementary list”, as that definition is no longer necessary. Amendment 347 amends paragraph 13(1)(b) of schedule 17 to the 2006 Act to ensure that the provision will contain the correct reference to new section 147A, instead of section 146, which is being repealed.

Amendment 345 agreed to.
