I welcome my hon. Friend Louise Haigh to her role on the Front Bench and pay tribute to her predecessor, my hon. Friend Tony Lloyd, who did such a wonderful job in that position. I am sure she will do an excellent job too.

May I follow up on what Dr Murrison said? The Minister says that a technical funding argument is an excuse for holding up justice for victims in this instance. That sounds particularly empty as an excuse. Can he not be more specific about when we can expect to see the scheme opened?
