Does not that mean that there is a great big hole in the Bill? If the raison d’être is about growth, why is there not something about procurement? In Wales, for instance, something like 70% of procurement is done through small and medium-sized enterprises, half of which are based in Wales. In England the figure is about 6%. If that were refocused on SMEs, particularly on green growth, it would do something for growth, but these measures are just messing around at the edges, are they not?
