I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way and for the opportunity of an exchange with the hon. Member for Christchurch. I hear the concerns of those on both Front Benches. If the Committee were minded to allow new clause 5 to make progress on this occasion, I should consult further on changes to it to try to deal with those concerns.
