I tried earlier to demonstrate that amendment 1 was unnecessary. Mr McLetchie's question was interesting, and I bow to his knowledge of the law, but today we are making legislation, and if the amendment says something that is already the case, and we accept that that is the case, at the very least the amendment creates duplication, and duplication within legislation makes for bad law.
