That is an interesting, and slightly esoteric, point, but I understand why the hon. Gentleman makes it, because we want to be as precise as we can. As I said earlier, these are essentially technical and administrative changes, which we are putting in place in anticipation of deregulation, so that amusement machines can operate more effectively in future.

I shall write to the hon. Gentleman to answer his detailed points. I shall type the letter to make it extremely clear and very readable, and I hope that that will satisfy him.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 11 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 12 to 15 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
