The Minister has argued that because some of the terms in the Bill are not consistent with the legal frameworks in some of the overseas territories, the amendments would not be appropriate. Surely, however, clause 33(3) states:

"Her Majesty may"- the amendment would say "shall"-

"by Order in Council provide for any of the provisions of this Act to extend, with modifications (including additions or omissions)".

If aspects of the Bill do not rhyme with provisions in some of the overseas territories, it can obviously be taken into account in the legislation that would be made.
