That is exactly why the public should be able to seek advice on such issues: if the adjudicator, when contacted, is able to say to the public, “There has not been a breach of the code in terms of the issues that  I deal with; here, therefore, are the other avenues that you might want to go down in order to seek remedy,” that sort of confusion would not arise. Perhaps when we reach clause 13, and, subsequently, the new clauses, we will be able to examine some of the issues of what is included in the code, whether the code is kept live and whether intermediaries are able to be included.
