Alert me about debates like this

The second part of the Amendment deals with specialised commodities like grain. That is one example covered by these words. Probably the Minister has it in mind to leave them out, anyway. He is leaving out certain categories. Since that is to happen, it is right to lay down clearly which types of company should be exempt. That would save them from the bother of the appeals procedure. To use a phrase which we used many times in Committee, this would remove a great deal of uncertainty. Much uncertainty still exists in this industry. The Minister has accepted suggestions from us to remove uncertainty. I hope that he will agree that this Amendment would also do that.
