My Lords, I was at Prime Minister's Questions yesterday. It was like a bear garden. Young people look at that and say, "That is the role, the example". I do not know how we could speak to the other House because in no way could we try to influence it, but is that not something which we in public life should consider? Government and individuals are able to influence this problem, perhaps not 100 per cent, but at least in some measure.
