On the question of judicial review, I think the Leader of the House failed to respond adequately to the valid point made by my hon. Friend Lady Hermon. As currently drafted, the Grand Committee on England, Wales and Northern Ireland will include all Members representing Northern Ireland constituencies. It does not clarify whether those are Members who have taken the oath. I can see that being a recipe for Sinn Féin launching a legal challenge.
