Lord Bates: My Lords, in the report that we are considering, Richard Heaton observed: “The volume of legislation, its piecemeal structure, its level of detail and frequent amendments, and interaction with common law and European law, mean that even professional users can find law complex, hard to understand and difficult to comply with”.

...Growth and Infrastructure Bill, Mr Howarth. I hope your Committee will agree that clauses 15 to 18, although largely technical, are sensible improvements to legislation that will have a positive impact on energy infrastructure.

Actually, everyone speaking today was, apart from the noble Lord,...
