Before my hon. Friend moves on, I take the point he made about my amendment 2, which was a helpful clarification. I am grateful to my hon. Friend Sir Peter Bottomley for pressing him on it, but the problem is that the provisions talk about articles

“found inside the prison or in a prisoner escort vehicle” or

“found in the possession of a prisoner”,

but if something is found in the possession of the prisoner in another place such as a hospital, I wonder whether that could be a potential loophole.
