Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments First Report


Memorandum by the Scottish Office Department of Health


(SCOTLAND) REGULATIONS 1998 (S.I. 1998/2259)

The Committee considered the above Instrument at its meeting on 10 November 1998 and requested a Memorandum on the following point:

    In relation to regulation 3(c)(i), please explain who is entitled to make an application for primary dental services on behalf of a person under the age of 18 who is looked after by a local authority. If some words have been intentionally omitted from that provision, identify those words.

The Department confirms that the words "by a person duly authorised by that authority" were inadvertently omitted from the end of regulation 3(c)(i), and are obliged to the Committee for pointing out this omission. Corrective Regulations have been prepared and will be laid shortly.
