I suppose you can say, if we were to be considering the case on the basis that the 1972 Act did contain a clamp, as you have put it, and then ask ourselves what is the effect of the 2015 Act, if we are faced with a choice between saying either that it, as it were, takes away the clamp as you suggest, or, as the alternative is, goes back to Parliament to decide what the effect of the 2015 Act is, then really we are saying the effect of the referendum is nothing, because it leaves us in precisely the same position that if it had not taken place, as far as we are concerned, because it is going back to Parliament.
