I am referring to new clause 17. If it were incorporated in the Bill, it would confer authority—on the basis of principles that I need not repeat—enabling the legislation to have the effect that I want: that is, where necessary to override the 1972 Act to reduce the burdens on business. I think that that point is well catered for.
