For the benefit of the Committee, I should explain that we hope to complete our proceedings this morning. The Minister is unfortunately not available next Wednesday, so there is no point in moving a motion that we should sit then. If circumstances prevail against us, the Chairman will make a decision on what to do at the end of this morning's sitting; and Members will be informed of it as quickly as possible.
