I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that reflection on the strengths and weaknesses of  devolution. The key issue for me is that the provisions of the Bill will be given effect in the United Kingdom. We will be able to seek and deliver prosecutions under the offences of people trafficking and human smuggling. If the party that I think is going to win the Scottish election does win, it will not be long before the provisions apply in Scotland too.
