I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. He is right that there are existing protections available. Greg Mulholland suggested some kind of moratorium. I am not clear how, legislatively, that might be performed. May I invite the Minister to join me in calling on all the organisations that might be tempted to show the worst of values and rush things through in advance of legislation instead to show the best of values and treat this as legislation that already existed, and to go through the proper planning processes for any decisions that they make between now and July?
