My Lords, I am not going to divide a thinly attended House at this hour of the night on this issue. What the Minister said is again consonant with the first amendment, which, after all, suggests a three-year period. That should be long enough even for the Home Office to come to some conclusions. However, in the circumstances, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment 185A withdrawn.

Amendment 185B

Moved by Baroness Northover

185B: Clause 124, page 107, line 29, after "instrument" insert "(whenever passed or made)"
