The Minister will be aware of legislation going through the Northern Ireland Assembly at this moment. Fiona Mactaggart tabled new clauses 6 and 7, which she is not going to press, but there is also new clause 22. I urge the House to support that new clause, which would provide a way forward. Will the Minister take into account the issues brought forward through legislative change in the Northern Ireland Assembly?
