Far be it from me to agree with the hon. Gentleman.

I can reassure the hon. Member for Daventry that, when I made those comments on Second Reading, I was fully cognisant of the experience represented by the hon. Gentleman and others, who I assumed would understand that a Bill coming from the Lords would need such an amendment. Given that reassurance, I hope that the Committee will support the amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Question proposed, That the clause, as amended, stand part of the Bill.
