I shall make a few comments on that clause that will apply more widely to the other clauses, but I shall not repeat it each time. Creating the powers to specify which public authorities the duty will apply to is too important to be left to secondary legislation. I should be interested to hear the Minister say why, after 10 years or so of preparation, the Government have not been able to include more detail in the Bill.
