§ The Secretary of State for Employment (Mr. Michael Foot)
The Government will not allow this situation to arise.
§ Mr. Adley
One hopes that the Secretary of State is successful in ensuring that it does not arise. Will he give a categorical assurance today that if it does 1474 he will immediately introduce amending legislation should any court rule that there is indeed a breach such as could occur under Clause 89 or Schedule 11 of the Employment Protection Bill?
§ Mr. Powell
Does this imply that an even larger discretionary area will be left to the Secretary of State in the reserve Bill than there is in the present Bill?
