You are right, Mr Robertson.

We look forward to the Minister’s being enthusiastic about using the opportunities given by new clauses 1 and 2 to persuade his officials to rewrite some of the Bill. Our concerns have grown and, as Opposition Members, we have seen one of our central tasks in Committee as highlighting, for the Minister’s benefit, the Bill’s complexity. New clauses 1 and 2 were tabled to give him the opportunity to reflect on what he has said.
