I am grateful to the Minister. He said a moment ago that one of the arguments he was advancing for not incorporating the charter was that it might then come into conflict with our own human rights law. Given that, as we heard from Joanna Cherry, it has been part of our law for some time, can he give the Committee one single example of that happening?
