The amendment extends the Bill to the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man at an appropriate time in the future. Negotiations with the relevant authorities will remain ongoing, but the provision is necessary so that, when they are completed, the Bill will be extended to those geographical areas.

Amendment agreed to.
