I accept what my hon. Friend said. Her Majesty's Government are not recommending in the motion that the directive should be adopted by the House. The situation is that, having heard the views of the House, we shall go forward to recommend that the directive be adopted by the Council of Ministers when it meets in a few days' time. The situation is that this House now has an opportunity to debate this directive before it is finally considered and is adopted by the Council of Ministers in a few days' time.
