My Lords, could the noble Lord expand on this a bit? Why was what was agreed by the technical expert working group beforehand-so the Commission came up to the level in Article 33-resiled on when it was agreed by all the member states? The Minister has already given examples of where there are going to be differences in treatment in the UK compared to the rest of Europe. Why in this instance has there been such a resiling from the position of the expert working group?
