Should the Committee agree to the hon. Gentleman's request to withdraw his amendments, I would not seek to move the amendment on the amendment paper in my name and those of my hon. Friends. I think that the Government are making progress, which should be recognised. As the debate has developed, the case made on the Opposition Benches has been strong, and follows the strong logic of the Government's own position. Although we are not going to vote on the amendments, I would urge the Government to reflect on the debate, and I hope that next year we might have total agreement in the Committee on further, more progressive amendments.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
