I could say the same the other way around. If the hon. Gentleman does not think that there is an interpretation of the word “economy” that most people would understand, how on earth does he think that there is an accepted interpretation of “exceptional local circumstances”. As he has said, that is a whole phrase that covers a range of different circumstances. I believe that the Conservative party is coming out in its true colours. It does not want to see those environmental measures being taken, and that is the point of its amendment.
