My Lords, I believe that I should reply first. The Minister's response was encouraging. He said that Ministers were here to be questioned. I shall make a note in my diary to put in a Written Question every six months, asking for the information-or something like it-that I seek in the amendment. It is very important that a close eye is kept on those who remain under an IPP sentence but whose tariff has expired. I beg leave to withdraw my amendment.

Amendment 154YUA (to Amendment 154YU) withdrawn.
