We accept that it is a concession—no one denies that—but there was quite an ominous ring in the Under-Secretary's voice when he said that this is a good tax, that it is a small amount, and that we collect this sum of money. I do not like the sound of that. I do not like the ominous tones, the suggestions that this can be extended. I would far rather get it removed. Anyway, we accept this as a concession, though a very minor one.
