As the Committee can see, we tabled amendments Nos. 155 and 156, but they were not selected for debate. They match what we sought to achieve for the similar provision in part 1. The same protections that we argued for in the counterpart provisions of part 1 should apply to these provisions. I hope that it is appropriate to say that in general terms, without debating unselected amendments. The Minister should be aware that that reinforces our concerns about the need to protect people by showing them warrants in a language that they can understand.

Order. It is not that the amendments have not been selected, but that they have already been debated.

I was trying to check the previous list to establish whether we covered them. I must have been looking at an incomplete list.

I tried to check it before I stood up to speak, but I obviously did not look at the right piece of paper.
