Now I am confused. Does that piece of advice constitute an excuse for the Minister not to consider the issue in more detail, or is it a stop-gap? The Minister has clearly identified a potential gap, to which she will undoubtedly want to give further thought. If that thought manifests itself in rewriting part of the clause before Report, we will be manifestly happy to have instigated that—even if the Minister does not give credit where it is due.

I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
