I am grateful to my right hon. and learned Friend and to the Chancellor of the Exchequer for the sympathetic view they have taken on this matter, which I had the honour, along with other Members, to raise. Frankly, I was rather doubtful about the efficacy of the Amendment which the Attorney-General has moved to do all that was necessary, having regard to the very technical nature of this matter. However, I understand that the Government will bring in the appropriate Amendment in another place. It may be that, in the meantime, those who are responsible for Members of this House taking action will be able to help the Government draftsman in the matter. We take note of the observations the Attorney-General has made; and if we can submit any suggestions to him, no doubt they will be considered. We are, of course, agreeable to the Amendment being withdrawn, on the understanding which has been given.
