The Bill has yet to pass through its other stages and we shall have an opportunity to look at this matter again on Report. However, under advice, I am of the opinion that the arrangements that we are proposing reflect the criminal justice review report. If, on studying these matters further, I reach a different opinion, there will certainly be opportunities to return to them at a later date. We do not yet have a date for the Report stage, but there will be opportunities to look at the issue at that point.
