Earlier in the debateindeed, throughout the debatewe have heard that we do not need to put the words in the Bill because it already complies with Community law. Anything in Community law applies to the Bill, so the words are unnecessary. If we take them out, and if the Government are right, the context does not change because the European Communities Acts apply. The wording seems superfluous and we try not to include such wording in Bills. I cannot see the logic of putting it in when it already applies and we have not put those references in anywhere else.
