We are trying to reflect the current constitutional position, which should reassure the hon. Member for Na h-Eileanan an Iar. It is unnecessary for the Scottish and Welsh Governments to be required to agree to a daylight saving order because they would be consulted. He should remember that in the money resolution debate the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, my hon. Friend the Member for Hertford and Stortford (Mr Prisk), said that

“the Government would not expect to introduce a trial if there was clear opposition in any part of the UK.”—[Official Report, 22 November 2011; Vol. 536, c. 256.]

He used the words that I am using today.
