- I apologise for the slightly artificial introduction of this amendment at this point in the proceedings. The use of a paving amendment, Amendment 120A, at this juncture is simply a result of the desire of the signatories to the amendment to ensure a proper debate in prime time in this House of the merits of Clause 17 and our proposed substitute for it.
Clause 17 is entitled Power to amend copyright provisions.
-  Approval of code about the initial obligations, Digital Economy Bill, Clause 6
