My Lords, when the Minister answers, it would be helpful if he could tell us where the buck stops, as my noble friend Lord Higgins has asked. One of the weaknesses of the tripartite system is that there is no buck-stopper around. The Minister should look very seriously at this amendment. Anything that welds the tripartite authority together to make it a more unified structure whereby each part supports the others rather than argues with them is to be applauded.
