My Lords, there has been striking unanimity on the issue of unfettered access to the GB internal market for businesses in Northern Ireland. The Minister raised certain issues which will require further investigation and monitoring. I add this by way of caution: noble Lords will do this, to ensure that that piece of legislation is in place and meets the requirements of businesses in Northern Ireland to allow them to grow, develop and be nurtured. Due to the time this evening, rather sadly, reluctantly and under protest, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment 6 withdrawn.

Clause 22: Powers corresponding to section 21 involving devolved authorities

Amendment 7 not moved.

Amendments 8 to 11 not moved.

Clause 26: Interpretation of retained EU law and relevant separation agreement law
