Thread Name: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
Spoke to my MP Saturday. Senior conservative. Thinks Howells is basically an ok bloke but drafting bills by Treasury Counsel often has "unexpected consequences" - as did the two in a bar exemption from the Licensing Act 1961.

Thinking about it the present position is technically hopeless for sessions, but OK outdoors. Now its difficult outdoors.

If only the Bill said what Howells says. I wonder if he is a bit pee'd off with all this. The rest of his bill seems to cause him no grief. He used to reply to my e-mails but I fear he has set up more recent ones to auto delete!
