I am grateful to the hon. Lady for highlighting that point.

I wish to make two or three quick points on this clause. First, I presume that the maximum fine of £20,000 may be for repeat offenders rather than first-time offenders. Clarification would be useful. Secondly, the power to make the regulations is exercisable by statutory instrument. Will that be by affirmative or negative resolution procedure?

Thirdly, subsection (2) states:

“Regulations under this Act may— make different provisions for different cases or different areas”.

What on earth does that mean? It seems to include every possible option for future variance in the regulations that may apply. Some clarification on those points would be helpful.
