I do not know whether the Financial Secretary was present when the Chief Secretary introduced the Bill. He said distinctly that the cost of the Bill in the current year would be £263 million and in a full year would be £403 million. As we are considering the Bill late in the financial year, it seems perfectly proper for the House to have regard to the full-year cost.
