I thank the hon. Gentleman. I am trying to understand whether there is an issue of principle here. The provision says that

''the judge has the same powers (as nearly as may be)''.

If that is what the hon. Gentleman says the situation is, as nearly as may be means that the same circumstances would apply to what we are discussing.
