I did not want to discuss this in a clause stand part debate, but it is interesting that we just agreed to clause 79 and the new rule against double jeopardy while the Government are proposing in other legislation in the House to change the rules about double jeopardy. I see that the Minister is shaking his head, but my right hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset teased his Front-Bench colleagues about that. There is something of a mismatch between the different criminal justice legislation before different Committees at different times.
