I am grateful for those remarks, although, as ever with the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, his invitations are to be accepted with care. The thought that I, my officials and my noble friend the Minister would not take note of this significant debate is absurd. Of course we recognise the significance of the points raised. I apologise for my inadequacy in assuaging all doubts. We will consider the matter further, but I hope that the noble Lord will withdraw his amendment today.
