I thank the Home Secretary for her statement, the review and the attitude that is being taken to it; that is very welcome. However, I am still disappointed that she did not allow the provision for 28 days' detention without charge to lapse during the period of the review. May I follow up the question asked by my hon. Friend Tom Brake, which did not get a clear response in her statement or her answer? Will she pledge not to introduce another 28-day detention period at the end of the six months, or is she trying to maintain that option-in order, perhaps, to ask us yet again to vote for 28 days' detention?
