In the 15 or so minutes remaining to me, I will endeavour to address all the points that have been raised. First, I thank Members on both sides of the House for their contributions and for the amendments that have been tabled. I particularly thank the shadow Minister for his typically reasonable tone in making his case forcefully. This Committee debate has been a wide-ranging and important one.
I will turn in detail to the amendments shortly, but, in the interests of time, I will swiftly address the requests for meetings or visits. Alex Cunningham was right when he said that he saw me nodding. I will be very happy to meet him, my hon. Friend Matt Vickers and the chief executive of his hospital trust to discuss the issues that he raised. I will also be very happy to meet Gareth Thomas separately to discuss the issues that he raised.
