I was interested to hear the Minister's comments on the last clause, and I wondered whether he might consider the use of a website for imparting information about registers.

I am pleased to give that assurance. In the technological age in which we have been living for some years, information should not only be posted on noticeboards and in newspapers; it should regularly—or perhaps routinely—be put on a website. I am pleased to say that all information will be posted on the website.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 16 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
