I shall explain the amendment, which is slightly more substantial than the other amendments I have spoken to.

Clause 138 makes unenforceable the terms of any contract or non-contractual agreement that denies the individual the protection set out in the Bill. The amendments will make unenforceable contracts that deny individuals the rights given to them in secondary legislation under the Bill. They tidy matters up and make them more rational. I hope that is clear.
