I shall take only 30 seconds. The amendment concerns 30 territories around the world to which British citizenship relates. I want to make sure that we do not forget that British citizens are not necessarily residents of the United Kingdom, but they may be residents of many of Her Majesty's territories around the world. All that I should like to be sure of is that these territories are on the record and that everyone understands that, when we are discussing taxation or membership of the House of Lords of British citizens, they are British citizens.
