Item of Interest

In March a Nursing Homes Registration Bill for Scotland, in terms almost identical to the English Act of 1927, was presented to the British House of Commons at the instance of the Scottish Office, in order that the law in Scotland should be brought into line with that of England. It is cause for much gratitude that Parliament, before passing the Bill, approved the insertion of a clause making provision for Christian Science Houses. The clause is slightly different from the one in the English Act, but it ensures full protection to the practice of Christian Science, and thus there has been given additional statutory recognition in the British Isles of the Church of Christ, Scientist, and the system of healing established by our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.

The Committee on Christian Science Houses, Granville House, Arundel Street, Strand, London, W. C. 2, will act on behalf of The Christian Science Board of Directors of The Mother Church in connection with the Act, as they have one in regard to the English Act since it came into operation in 1927.

The title of the Benevolence Fund in future will read as follows: Fund for aiding Christian Scientists to enter Christian Science Houses in England, Scotland, and Wales.
