I do not agree with that. I draw Mark McDonald’s attention to the Welsh example. The Welsh Assembly’s standing orders allowed an LCM to be debated. The legally binding aspects of that LCM should be considered. Members should look at the Supreme Court’s ruling in 2013 on the Agricultural Sector (Wales) Bill, which was in favour of the Welsh Assembly. It can be broadly interpreted from that that there is a strong argument to debate an LCM in not only Wales but Scotland. That is helpful. [Interruption.]
