No, Sir, because quite a lot of the people who will be brought in were legitimately out of the previous Order. There were people who were not in their homes at the time of the registration and others who had not reached the ages. There were so many different reasons for not registering that it is impossible to sort out those who might come under penalties. It is much better to say, "Will you please all come in because it is urgent?"
