I think that what we are urging is: can we look at this and can we not get hung up on “We don’t want any amendments to this Bill”? If it were a government amendment, it could get nodded through and we could pretend that it had not happened, if the Government want a clean Bill—we will not even tell anybody, just send the tweak through. But it is important to get this right rather than worry about one’s amour propre. For the moment, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment 11 withdrawn.

Clause 13 agreed.

Clause 14 agreed.

Clause 15: Independent Monitoring Authority for the Citizens’ Rights Agreements

Debate on whether Clause 15 should stand part of the Bill.
