It was interesting to be given an insight earlier this evening into the Minister's attitude to his own brief. At times he was clearly not too pleased with the words he was reading out. If the House will bear with me, I too can give hon. Members an insight into the words on my brief by reading them out: I should begin by saying that the Report stage was dominated by Government amendments,...
I understand that an amendment to the English and Welsh Bill was introduced to cover this very matter, but that proposed new paragraph (b) was not included. Why does the Minister feel that a wider power—beyond that to deal with cases of mismanagement—is necessary in the Scottish Bill but not in that governing England and Wales? Or does he expect further changes to be made to that Bill?
That was mismanagement.
Former MP for Kincardine and Deeside
