In the interests of trying to make progress, I want to ask the Minister a couple of questions about the references in clauses 66 and 68 to the Court of Session in Scotland. Will those references be covered by the legislative consent motion, which has to go through the Scottish Parliament? Also, should any costs fall on courts in Scotland, are they covered by the expenses “reasonably incurred” referred to in clause 67? Would that be transferred from the UK Government to the Scottish Government?
