My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for her explanation. I remind her that we raised this matter a long time ago and she made some genuine concessions. The powers of immigration are restricted. As my noble friend said, if I were a Muslim from Pakistan, I would certainly want to know whether I had been rejected on racial or religious grounds. It may be a few more years before we get such an amendment on to the statute book, but we will certainly keep trying. In the mean time, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.
