I understand the situation, but it depends on whether we are leaving things in aspic or whether there is an incentive for people to move towards the new arrangements. The clause preserves the situation in aspic without giving people an incentive and an obvious opportunity to move to the new arrangements. The Paymaster General has clearly stated the position, and those who need to consider their dispositions will have paid heed to what has been said in Committee. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Clause 141 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
