As my hon. Friend knows, I am a sponsor of the Bill and I feel strongly about the issues that it covers. I want to raise a similar point to that made by Sir Robert Smith. My hon. Friend mentioned that the Government would produce draft regulations soon. How soon is that? Does he anticipate a further round of consultation on the draft regulations or will they be laid before Parliament and processed relatively quickly?
