The hon. Lady is making an important point about the variety of places where we might want to encourage such activity. However, I do not understand why the amendment is necessary; none of the examples advanced so far, including the one that she has just given, cannot be met by some other part of subsection (5G), which refers to "grounds, or other land" used

"by a charity in pursuance of its charitable purposes".

The amendment may be a nice thing, but it is completely redundant—a bit like the Lib Dems I suppose.
