We are content with the three-month notice proposal and I thank the Minister for making it clear that that is the Government's intention. As people get used to tax credits, it is likely that prompt notice will be given if circumstances worsen; if they improve, it is likely that people will take the maximum three-month period. Again, that raises issues of ease of recovery. However, we have an acceptable minimum and on that basis I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
