I expect that the Minister knows more about motive clauses than I do. Given the fact that there are a lot of motive clauses on anti-avoidance measures, what kind of parameters have the Government used? I think that he is saying that it would be too burdensome or difficult to have the motive clause in the case under discussion. Is there a particular point at which the motive clause makes sense and another point at which it becomes too administratively difficult?
