My Lords, the fourth and fifth lines from the bottom of page 8 in the Marshalled List make up proposed new paragraph (2) in the amendment, which reads:

"The power to make modifications under this Article includes power to make incidental, consequential or transitional modifications".

Are those modifications limited in any way? When Parliament legislates in such a way, it is usual to make quite sure that such modifications are limited to the matter under consideration in the relevant part of the Bill.
