I am concerned about the amendment's practicality. During a short holiday in France, I had the great joy of watching S4C by some technical wizardry that enabled the owner of the property to watch club rugby while enjoying the finest wines available in the area. I do not know whether we would need the co-operation of various organisations in France to carry out the amendment's requirements.

The Wales centre for health will have lots of organisations with which it can carry out its information campaigns, including the Brecon and Radnor Express—an excellent newspaper that is widely read throughout my constituency. However, Mr. Wiggin took things a little far when he said that the amendment would produce a reduction in surgery rage and hospital rage. I am not sure about the cost effectiveness of all the work that would have to be done.
