I am not sure whether the right hon. Gentleman is saying that there should be a smoking ban in people's own homes or whether he is saying that there should not be a smoking ban at all. No doubt, he will make his views clear in the debate. However, his question reflects the confusion that we know exists among Conservative Members.

New clause 5 replaces the existing clause 3 of the Bill.

"However, his question reflects the confusion that we know exists among Conservative Members."

Surely it would have been more accurate to say:

"His question highlights the inconsistent logic behind the Bill."
