I am very grateful to the Minister for his reply and to the noble Baroness, Lady Manningham-Buller, for her expert intervention. The House is fortunate to have her depth of knowledge. She referred specifically to anti-terrorism work, but the clause is drafted more widely than that, because it refers to,
"for the purpose of any criminal proceedings".
I hear what the noble Baroness says, and I shall read it very carefully. I shall also read the Minister's detailed reply. In the mean time, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.
