The Minister would in principle accept that interpretation of law will not happen on the floor of the Chamber and interpretation of law does not happen in an operating theatre; interpretation of law happens in a courtroom by judges. That is why it is important that we get this right. There are concerns. Whether the Minister agrees with those concerns or not, given there are concerns about phrases, and we will hear in the health committee today from a number of legal people, is the Minister open to any changes of the text in regard to the lease, the constitution or any of the other elements of the legal framework in terms of that phrase or any other phrase?
