I am completely unconvinced by the hon. Gentleman's argument. It does not take much to imagine charities being badgered by all sorts of people to accept all sorts of gifts under the amendments he tabled. That is likely to be a source of aggravation and unnecessary activity and I am not convinced that the amendments would have the beneficial impact that he wants to achieve.
