I thank the Minister for that brief response. I think that he failed to deal with the point that I put to him, which was that nothing in the schedule related to the accountability structures that the Government have alleged that they are creating. Accountability to the members of the trusts is completely absent from Schedule 5. I shall reflect on his answer and perhaps table a raft of different and more extensive amendments to consider on Report. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.
