One can imagine the circumstances that the Minister describes being fairly dramatic ones. The power that we are discussing would be unusual and would not be exercised in the usual course of events. What right of appeal would there be? What procedure would take place in respect of an appeal? Also, at what point and in what circumstances would the Secretary of State take the power? Answers to those questions might be beneficial to the Committee as we try to decide whether we need to vote on this issue.
