I am grateful to the Minister, who, interestingly, said that dissolution is an important matter and that, therefore, it is important to get consultation right. I think that the subtext is that the prudential borrowing code—some of us have significant doubts about its relevance and importance—is not an important matter. We have at least had some light shed on the Government's thinking. I shall consider carefully what the noble Lord said. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.
