The Minister said that he would reflect on amendment (a), and I find it difficult to understand what he will be reflecting on. But—this is the big "but"—this is the only opportunity that this House has to express an opinion on it. He can reflect as long as he likes, but this House will not have the opportunity to express its opinion unless it does so tonight. So can he reflect a little more quickly, and perhaps accept it?
