I would react differently if I didn't know that clauses 6 and 7 of the bill were eventually going to be removed. This deals strictly with the consultations. I don't see the point of putting it off until after the next election, especially since the minister will be asked to submit a report. Theoretically, the minister's mandate comes to an end with the next election.
I'm absolutely fine with a two-year consultation period. I don't see why it's necessary to extend that timeline until after the next election, especially since we know that the main substance of the bill is going to be removed.
