I move amendment No. 171:
In page 19, line 5, after "time to time", to insert ", and not less than once every 12 months,".
The section itself is very specific. It says that the health board "shall" cause to be visited from time to time each pre-school service in the area in order to ensure that the person carrying on the services fulfils the duty imposed on him under this section and that the services are carried on in accordance with regulations made by the Minister. The amendment is asking that the inspection be carried out not less than once every 12 months. I think that is reasonable. If there is a statutory obligation on the health board to carry out the inspection there must at least be a period within which it must be carried out. While one has to be clerical in one's appraisal of the situation and sympathetic in one's approach, nevertheless, it must be specified that within a certain period of time inspections have to be carried out.
