As I suggested on the previous group of amendments tabled by the hon. Member for Christchurch, I recognise that there are still issues to resolve on the clause. My hon. Friend the Minister alluded to some of the difficulties that are still to be resolved. If the Committee is minded to reject the three amendments, I will consider further the comments of the Minister and the hon. Gentleman, with a view to tabling amendments on Report or recognising that another legislative opportunity might be more appropriate for such changes.
