I just want to make the following point, then I will give way with pleasure.

I ask my hon. Friend and other supporters of the Bill to be patient for a little longer. The Government will soon publish revised proposals on the OFR, which will be a significant improvement on the illustrative clauses that were published in the White Paper and are largely reproduced in the Bill. We will publish with the draft regulations a document setting out our policies and the reasons for them.
