My Lords, I am grateful for the support of the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart. He mentioned, incidentally, that he probably knows more about perpetuities and excess accumulations than anyone else in this House. As far as I am concerned, there is no contest.

I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Kingsland, for his support, and others who have turned up to hear the debate on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. I suppose that those sitting on the government Front Bench had no option over whether to turn up or not, but they have turned up and I am grateful for the Government's support for the Bill.

Bill read a second time and committed to a Committee of the Whole House.
