My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Bach, said some considerable time ago when the debate started that it was the Government's intention to delete these clauses from the Bill. Perhaps the Minister could confirm that the effect of these clauses, were they to be enacted, would be to repeal the Convention Rights Proceedings (Amendment) (Scotland) Act 2009 and statutory instrument 2009/1380, which I recall debating in this House last year. Is the Minister content that, if these clauses are not enacted, the legislation passed by the Scottish Parliament will still be effective?
