What I find interesting about the new clause is the principle put forward by the hon. Member for Newry and Armagh (Mr. Mallon). The Minister's points may be technically correct. I do not want to criticise him, but he sounded a trifle pedantic. If the principle is accepted, there is a case for the change that the hon. Member for Newry and Armagh proposes.
