I am sure that we will look at that question in Committee. The purpose of the Bill, however, is to give us a range of ways to protect what we seek to protect, so that at one end of the spectrum we can say that nothing can happen at all and at the other end of the spectrum we can say, "All these things can happen except this one." That depends on what we are trying to protect, and the flexibility that is to be found in the Bill gives us the means to achieve all those things.
